2010 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Vs 2010 Honda CBR1000RR

This page is a comparison between the 2010 Suzuki GSX-R1000 and the 2010 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade. The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is a favourite of mine along side the Suzuki and Yamaha at the time of writing this page. The Fireblade is the first example of Honda’s new design and styling theme and I describe it as retro/futuristic/anime literally unlike any other manufacturer at present.

The two super sport bikes are potentially the fastest and best handling motorcycles you can buy in 2010. I use the term potentially because each motorcycle’s abilities are only as good as the rider – meaning you!

I like a unique looking yet stylish in mind and the CBR1000RR suits my taste perfectly and if I wanted a super sports motorcycle this would be the one I’d get! (Infinitely better than the ‘me too’ style of the pre-2008 versions.) The other thing I like about it is the feel and look of solid engineering – just lovely. In fact one of my riding buddies has bought a new one but will not let me ride it (long story). He tells me it grows on you and very usable – whatever that means.
