GSXR1000R Model Comparison
So have a buddy who picked up an 18 R model gsxr 1000, some back and forth with them vs the bmw's.Figured I'd throw in a topic here - to see if anyone else has compared them. I do remember a few threads on this but cant't find them.
I did get a chance to take it for a short spin. I'll say it does feel very nimble/light like a 600 with very effortless turn in & and handling. Inspired a little more confidence then my 16RR (could just be the tires) .
Packs a punch down low-mid range ish but left some to be desired on the hwy. Felt like our bikes edge these out power wise without issue. Ergos for me were pretty uncomfortable (5'9) but maybe i'm just not used to it . Very high up on the seat feel - and bars feel lower , felt like it would become an issue for any length of time .
Contemplated picking up a gsxr R as the miles are getting up there on my s1k, only due to the low price point 13xxx for new leftovers. But cast wheel upgrade would be another 3k+. May be worth the wait for a 2020 s1k next year or the year after .
