While I agree, the power difference between this and the FZ09 is HUGE. There is something to be said about have a 75hp bike though, I mean you can take full advantage of your power.

Well... if the 300 was built to the same standards as a 636 it would be a bit lighter. :D I think the skinnier tires help too.

Tight curvy roads.... if only I had some of those. :becca

It'll be interesting to see if the RC 390 an get to 50 HP if it ever comes out. A 50 hp RC 390 is a bike I would ride.

I have a Ninja 250, full exhaust and jetted, so about 30 at the rear wheel. I would imagine 40 would be quiet a bit better.

I don't know anyone who rides around at 150 mph, it's about how fast you can get to 70 mph or so. For instance, when I merge onto the highway on my 600 it's a non-dramatic event, but when I do the...

I really like this bike, but can't help but thinking a fully faired FZ09 even for a $500 more would be a much better bike.

Not sure, but I would imagine the suspension alone would get you close to the look. With the cost of the bike you could probably get pretty close for under 10k.

I actually kind of like it.

The bike has better lines than the 883 IMO.

It's lighter, cheaper, more powerful, etc.
