Did my first track day on the 2014 R and it is no sportbike! Despite what I have heard it will not keep up with a well ridden sport bike on track....but it does handle amazingly well for what it is, and the stock tires are incredible. On my 2011 Speed Triple I ran mid pack in the A group (granted it was a big gap to the front runners on thier race bikes), on this I would be at the tail of the A group (being optomistic), or front 1/3rd of the B group would be my guess (this track day was a free for all with no groupings!). You will not have to worry about the front wheel size on the road at all if you are running the stock tires.
