Funny, I want to kill the CB with fire but the GSX is much more appealing. Better flow, nicer lines and execution, the GSXS gets the gold.

What is that ugly piece of metal stuck under the Honda? Part of an old Zero? Oh! I get it now.. is and exhaust pipe!! Designed? That's arguable! :)

The Honda has been around for several years. In person, its very nice looking and well finished. I test drive a used one. Very nice, all around.

The power reminded me of my concours 14. No peaks, or valleys, just power when you want it.

As far as fun to ride, I'll bet a sewing machine might have more personality. Not to say it was slow, its not, but very boring.

I had by '11 CB1000R for four years before selling it for the F. It's pretty hard to fault, well built, smooth power delivery, nice handling characteristics. 2008 - 2012 it was up there with the rest, but for me Honda has failed to develop the bike into what it should be now. No TC, no gear indicator on it's digital dash and underpowered in it's class.

Oh, and I knew of only a handful of owners that kept the exhaust.... not only is it a little ugly and very heavy, it's whisper quiet!

You know the bike Id like to see is an updated fz1. I dont think we'll see it as its too close to their fz09, but theres many old r1 parts that could be added/used to update it.

A new fz1 based on the current r1 would be great, I've been waiting for one for years. Come on Yamaha!
