I have just come back from a Honda roadshow, wher i test drove the VFR1200 and CB1000R.
I have a ZX14 with 200HP and buttloads of tourq, i am used to power from the get go, but i have to say this, the CB1000R was freeking fun even with "only" 125HP. Power from low down and very comfortoble upright seating position.
I did not feel that it was lacking any power at all. The grin on my face i still ther after 5 hours
Its a bloddy holigan ready raise hell
