Ok, I’ve put up this page for those who choose things based on specifications – you know who you are. High performance specifications never tell the real story or effect sales. Only real world performance determines whether it will be a suitable motorcycle for you. Regardless of my personal opinions here are some interesting comparisons with other Honda motorcycles.
The following scan is a comparison chart (mainly performance) between the Ducati 1098 Vs Ducati 1098R Vs Honda CBR1000RR Vs Kawasaki ZX-10R Vs Kawasaki ZX-14 Vs MV Agusta 1078R Vs Suzuki GSX-R1000 Vs Suzuki Hayabusa Vs Yamaha QZF-R1 Vs Hennessey GT1000.

As a BLOG I have to add the following commentary – There are plenty of really fast motorcycles to choose from. Each sportsbike model has its strengths and weakness and your choice will be combination of many factors but probably one or two key ones. For example I tend to go for looks before anything else but I do take into account performance of any motorcycle as a secondary consideration – as my BLOG says it’s not all about power!
