Ha Ha yes, but I must admit I do it myself quite often when riding.It is a great review but I wish that guy would have stopped smacking his lips!! LOL
Hey Tom welcome to the site! Would you happen to have a link to the comparison itself?The French magazine "Motomag" placed the S1000 against the Z1000, CB1000R and the BWM S1000R.
It got a first place (value vs price).
Some highlights: It praises the driving comfort, surprised by the loud exhaust (100db), laments that some parts next to the feet already lost parts of their paint...
Praise about the many functions on the dashboard but regrets the little place in which they are located.
Got rated as having the best lighting part up front (best visible)
In a matrix full of ratings, our S1000 gets the highest on the engine part (Z1000 2nd), 1st place cycle (shared with BMW), 2nd on safety (Honda 1st), shared 1st place on budget
As negative points, they mention the need to pull the brakes quite hard before they react and the overall style being nice but not that new/special.
