ozzyp Posted March 28, 2011 Report Share Posted March 28, 2011 Hey all, This past weekend I went with a buddy to check out a bike that he is interesting in buying from a coworker. It was an 03 Honda 954RR. He test rode it and then asked if I wanted to try it out to see what I thought. Of course, I said I would. Never one to turn down a chance to ride something different . I noticed right off the back the substantial increase in torque and acceleration, but what stood out to me the most was the additional effort it required to corner. I ride a GSX-R 600 and found that the 954 required more effort that i'm used to. With that said, this was my first time riding a sportbike over 600cc other than a buddy's Kawi 636 I rode a couple years back. So my question is (and I know I've had a lot of them ); do liter bikes normally require more of an effort to corner? Is this something that is across the board with all brands? Or was it just specific to Honda, or this model even? I know people rave about how great the handling is on the Yamaha's so I'm just curious if this is an isolated incident. Are the 600cc bikes that much easier than a liter bike as far as handling is concerned? Thanks, Ozzy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
