What superbike

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 Thinking of getting back into bikes after been AWOL due to starting a family for about 4 years. 

 I always wanted a Fireblade and have been looking at the post 2017 models and the SP range with an eye on the RC8 as I like the torque of a twin after having a tuned TLS as my last bike. 

 I've not looked at the BMW yet but wondering what people thoughts were who have some experience with these?

    Thanks, Herb.

The RC8R is a super adjustable bike and great if you're tall. However it has none of the rider aids of the up to date bikes. S1000rr would be my choice as i like all the electronic help I can get at 190+ but.

I’d say the st is the pick of the bunch (but there’s no bad bikes anymore). Despite the power, it’s a doodle to ride on the road. So much so, it’s almost boring if that makes sense.

Unless track days are your thing, I’d get something that’s a bit more fun on the road.

Thanks for the replys. I almost looked at the Panigale and blade and although the Ducati is really nice I almost bought the blade until a S1000RR popped into my head and now waiting on it being prepared. A MV would be nice.

Before you commit yourself make sure you take the latest GSXR1000 for a test ride you will love it, I know a guy that works at a local Honda, BMW, KTM dealerships & he was telling me that they just don’t get problems with the blade’s but the S1000RR along with all the other BMW’s are not a patch on the Honda’s reliability wise.
