Cool 1078RR vs 312R

Possibly a subject well beaten to death, so apologies in advance.

Any comments from current users are very welcome!

(No, the Y10 models still hold no attraction for me)

As you probably know Mike I don't own either model but I have ridden both and I would go for the 1078 if I was choosing between the two.

Cool

As some of you may remember I had a 312R for six weeks in the summer of '08, before binning it on a trackday.

I have fond memories of that bike, though even fonder of the 1078RR, which is probably in some respects (slightly more comfortable suspension, better brakes, a bit more midrange) an even better bike. Only disadvantage of the 1078RR I can think of is that engine, which can be seen as just too much.

It's more of a money thing really; I'm getting tired of spending money on motorbikes.

In my opinion 1078 all the way, as you mentioned more bike for the money, better brembos, better marzochi, better engine...but if you find a good deal on 312R!

A little OT but I need to know how to do good "drag" starts on my 1078. Got Ass whipped by a Ninja 10R. I might have been ok if I got off the line good but the Damn front tire goes against laws of gravity. Love doing twisties all day but here in Indianapolis we get creative on Sat nights about 1am for some fast bike/car side by side fun. I've ridden both and dig mine.
