It is not "which one to I like the most", but more "which one do I dislike the least." The CBR, GSXR, and ZX10R all have some god-awful exhausts that from this view truly ruin the whole bike. As someone previously stated the '03-'04 GSXRs and R1s were truly handsome machines, and represented the breed well, but the new ones? Hurl

I have an '09 CBR1000RR.  Mine is White which I personally think brings out the best of the CBR's styling. I cleaned up the styling a little more by removing the passenger pegs and replacing the pillion with a cowl.  I just don't get the R1. To me it's just ugly!  The once great looking Kawasakis and Suzukis in years past are now,well,ugly too.  
Since we are not talking about handling, performance,etc., I won't get into the CBR's great ergonomics, handling and its wonderful linear power delivery.  (except for a crappy flat spot at 4,500 r.p.m.)

I am looking at getting a second bike in the next few months. I'm getting shoulder surgery Jun 1st, so this should put me off to some time in late August. I like the way the 08' GSX-R 1000 White/Silver bike looks. My current lineup of bike choices are : R1 Black/Red (the pic above), CBR1000RR Repsol (prices are coming down on these), and the 08' GSX-R 1000 White/Silver.

All three bikes completely rock; so, it will probably be which is the best deal I can get.

I have to agree with the person who posted that the 600s are looking good. There are some really nice paint jobs on those right now. They should pass that up to the 1000s. I'm not sure why they offer the Monster Energy graphics on the ZX-14 and the ZX-6 but not the ZX-10.

 They all look so similar to me. The Suzuki and Kawi have reticules huge exhaust that I don't like. But out of the choices I would perfer the Yamaha.

 What about Ducati, BMW, Aprilia, or even the Buell. My next bike will probably be the 1125R Buell. I don't want to hear it, I like it.



I agree (Except for the Buell part Lol).  They are really starting to look a lot alike.  A few years ago, they each had their own look.

IMO, they are all uglier now than in previous years.

But if I had to choose in stock trim I would say it's a tossup between CBR and R1.  The stock Gixxer exhaust is more fail than the other exhausts. Crazy

For the price of the R model, I'd rather have a boat, car, and a motorcycle. It is a nice bike though...

2004 R1 in red. Inlove
Skip's right... all have gotten uglier. The first-gen ZX-10Rs were nice, too.
