A good review, typical of sportrider.

I think that what makes a bike the best really comes down to personal preference/s. Ergonomics will feel different to each person, and whats comfortable for me may not be comfortable for someone else who is the same height/weight as i am. The visual appeal will differ depending on the personal tastes of the person viewing it and when it comes to performance, that is once again a personal choice. The bikes in the sportrider test have a max of .5 secs seperating them 0-100km/h times, unless the bike is being raced this .5 secs means nothing.

Regardless of what bike/s we choose if we choose what fits our personal preferences we will all have the 'best' bike.

I made a mistake above......

The .5 sec time difference is the quarter mile time, NOT the 0-100km/h time.

Means the same thing in context, no worries. I figured this could/would be a good resource, its got all the relevant competitors in one place. Unfortunately the monster is the only one I find 'pretty'... I think the F will blow these away in terms of looks... But then again I sppose if I was goig for looks I'd just go Gixxer and call it...
