Friends I haven't seen in a while Bought new bikes this season . One Got a 2014 Kawasaki ZX10RR and another bought 2015 Suzuki GSXR 1000RR.Anouther friend came also who owns a 2011? BMW S1000RR. To celebrate we took off work ,went out to the sticks/pocanos and went for crazy / break neck ride. My 2007 MV AGUSTA is worked= soup to nuts , racing radiator,race water pump, hub, microtec,CRC race exhausts, race intake JRI 28/30 mm fork cartridges nitro best race shock discantti front rotors ISR front calipers , BRAKING cam front master cylinders,Grip one pro 2 traction/wheelie control ect ect . So its a bit more refined than stock. We rode/raced for the whole day had a blast. We swapped bikes from time to time ,so I ended up riding the latest greatest bikes on the market back to back . I can say without bias that my MV 1000R handling was on par with all the new tech bikes and had MORE bottom end power. NONE of us are ready for WSBK racing bikes like the ZX10R and BMW S1000RR that arnt in there power range until 9000 rpm lost ground on exits in tighter corners . I had more fun on my less refined F41000R than on any of the other bikes. The raw excitement made me love my bike over all the other bikes. maybe its just my age ( im 50) but its so much more fun to RIDE the bike instead of the bike being SO good refined you feel like the bike is riding and your a passenger.
