THIS? OR THAT! on the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall

Week #2 of THIS or THAT. Last week's Winner: 2018-Honda-CB1000R

You won first prize and that prize was a motorcycle, which one would YOU pick and WHY would you over the other one?

THIS:

Information and Photos click here: https://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcy ... 750-review

Three decades ago Suzuki revolutionized sport bikes with the introduction of the GSX-R750. Ever since then, the GSX-R750 has remained true to its original concept and championship-winning heritage. On the road or on the track, the GSX-R750 delivers a breathtaking combination of outstanding engine performance, crisp handling, compact size and light weight. Its secret is an unequaled pairing of 750cc performance with the lightweight, compact chassis of a 600cc Supersport, complemented by technologically advanced suspension front and rear. Try a GSX-R750 and you’ll quickly realize this motorcycle defines performance riding from the center of the sportbike class.

OR
THAT:
2018-Honda-CB1000R
Information and Photos click here: https://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcy ... 00r-review

Honda’s new CB1000R is like a triple-shot of espresso for your motorcycling soul—black, no sugar. You get a high-revving 998cc four-cylinder engine, throttle-by-wire and Honda Selective Torque Control. Plus, check out the minimalist rear fender and four-into-one exhaust.



The winner of this week's THIS OR THAT will go on and fight the challenger next week. The overall winners will be determined how many weeks they can beat the competition.

Enjoy!

Oh wow, what a pairing... so hard to choose!

I went with the Honda because I love it's modern, compact styling and the fact that it's a 1000CC and I think I'd love to really give that a go. What gave me a chuckle is that it was the Kawasaki review which touted "compact chassis"... Umm... have they seen the photos in today's this or that...??? :lol:

Something about the Honda captures my desires more than the boring Suzuki styling. Seems the performance would be about equal. Either way not a big fan of eating bugs but believe the Honda would be a smoother ride.

Might not be readable, but attempting to take the specifications from each bike and build a comparison chart of sorts.

Not my type of ride. ask about a standard and I'd pick a mid sized engine.

Gixxer for me, and I usually go for the bike with the biggest engine.

Wow markdcoco, you are indeed a data person at heart!

If you are interested in putting all my models in some sort of data chart, let me know!

Wow.

Well, darn it, with my bike of choice losing last week, it is a tough choice this week. I really like the looks of the GSX-R750, what an iconic motorcycle, but then again, so is the CB1000!

So between these two, hands down, it would be the CB1000 as I just can't ride a supersport (too tall), but wow, what a bike that GSXR would be.

CB1000 FTW.

I'm surprised it wasn't more tied this week between the two, that CB1000 sure is a winner for Honda... let see if it can win it's 3rd week!

DING DING DING! We have a WINNER

Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaadies and gentlemen, may I have your attention!

In a 7 to 1 knockout decision, this week's Champion and now 2 Week in a Row Champion, the 2018 Honda CB1000R moves forward to face heavyweight touring favorite, the 2018 Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS bruiser!

Let's have a clean fight and no hitting below the airbox.

Mike,
Now that sounds like fun. I previously tried to send you messages within the web site, but don't think they got through. Let me know how you want to communicate and we can establish a baseline for the table content, order of bikes, access to their information and figure out how to move forward.
Thanks,
Mark
