How could a third fastest bike be #1 super bike? it has the lowest BHP, and definitely not in the even top 4 sexiest.

Third fastest paid them the most money = #1 bike.

I'm sure it's not all based on speed. Pick what you like best and buy it cause they are all good bikes.

The Brits have always loved the "Fireblade". Just look at the TT. It's no surprise that they're moister than a oyster over a much overdue update.

At the same token they were tested on a track that imo fed the torque of the duc. I dont see how the RSV was so poorly rated.

I'd say Duc, R1M and RSV4 ... pick which one fits your preference. The others just lack something to be in the same class. I've had the Gen 4 (and3) zx10, the s1000rr and the R1M... The M in terms of handling was in a complete league of it's own even though the others were outfitted with full online. Looking forward to saddling a 1299s to compare.

Fair, IMO as the test was factoring in many things including speed around the track. Honda has the capability and huge backing to engineer to all of the factors tested here so hats off to Honda for competing on this front all over again. The Duc, well, better luck next time, but it is still recognized as the most exotic superbike, de facto, on the streets by most, so it doesn't even need this showdown to prove that. My only gripe, where's MV Agusta F4 in all this?

At the dealership while trying to figure out who owns the bike.

C'mon man! I for one am looking forward to MV's replacement for the longstanding F4. My current one has been very reliable...
