Mt 10

Not rode one , but from what I've read they seem pretty rapid, but fook me what an ugly looking bike, someone described one on another forum perfectly " it looks like someone magnetised the frame and dragged it through a junk yard backwards "
... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say.

good bike , different character to the GSX , sleepy on high revs compare too

Better TC let You enjoy the bike
derived from R1 RN32 plenty of special parts are direct swap
V4 sound
better suspension
same spongy brakes
high fuel consumption
sidestand is well made (not the crap on the GSX)

More i think about , more is hard to understand

The price difference in Australia is only $500 too so a GSXR with higher bars on it is an option and what you are suggesting , hmmmm not a bad idea

That's the recommended retail price, the gsxr was almost $1000 cheaper a couple of weeks ago

GSX-r is an awesome bike but it really is not as easy to ride around town, even with high bars it just feels different and not happy until your moving. Why does everyone always ask "why didn't they just make a naked GSX-R".....GSX-R and GSX-S do not ride the same. These 2 bikes have considerable overlap but gsx-r makes your work harder for its performance advantages.....its hard to be "lazy" on that bike but not so on my GSX-s. Having ridden with many R owners ive come to realize that very few people have the riding skills to take advantage of the performance differences....An experienced rider on an S will still "beat" a less experienced driver on an R....And that is the point of the GSX-s, competent around town and the track but the R really only shines above 70mph (where its meant to live.)

I guess in my mind there is more to a naked (standard) bike than just stripping the fairings from a super sport model.

As far as the mt-10, its one of those bikes that looks good on paper but I was really let down in person. It really is not as refined as our bike. The plastics and the way they attach to the bike are horrible (seriously, just touch the bike and you will see what I mean about feeling cheap). There are multiple exposed cables by design. I think the brakes are the same as on my fz-07 which were garbage there too. The bike is fast, but the engine was boring.....no rush of power at 8000 rpm. I didn't really get to try traction control. I'm jealous of the cruise control though. The seating was good/comfortable.

I personally like the look of the headlights....way better than the kawa "saggy boob" look.

I know the suspension is supposed to be better but aside from its adjustability i dont think it performed better at all......super spongy, especially the back. That was the same problem on my fz-07, no matter how I adjusted, it just likes to bounce.

My last bike was a r6 streetfighter, it was awesome, only regret was I wish I'd done an r1.
The mt10 imo is ugly and I never got on with it, just thought it was OK

Well at least in oem status gsx-r did not get on-off problem

Stripped supersport must be the right recipe as sold unit numbers are pretty poor here...

found k5 1000 against S dyno
pretty interesting
