Let me know George. If I don't jump on a new R1 I may want to go this route. Call me when it's in the store.

Re: RSV4 Official Launch

The bike is going to be $20K not $26K. Everyone's using the 20K Euros and converting it straight over...doesn't work that way.

Anyway, some more stuff:

Re: RSV4 Official Launch

Masterbike results are already in. If you're fluent in Spanish, there's a full writeup in Motoclisimo Esp. The skinny is the RSV4 was over a full second faster than the 2nd place Suzuki GSXR1000(K9).

Here's a digital copy of the article. If you don't purchase the single copy, you only have three zoom-ins. But it's under $3 and it's a decent read (if you know Spanish).
