The RSV4 is so raw, and so connected to very aspect of the
bike. You feel the vibration of the V4 at low rpm. You hear the MotoGP exhaust
note rumbling with every application of throttle. It just begs to be pushed. It
flicks side to side so effortlessly, it actually requires more thought and
input. 9k and up and the wheel trys to come up all the way to 14.2k. She's a screamer.
The exhaust note is just pure MotoGP, I
can't get enough of it. Even when you're idling you're constantly reminded of
the V4 beast between your legs that's like a lion waiting to jump on it's
The overall ergonomics are very comfortable. For a relatively small dimensioned
bike, she feels very roomy.
The icing on the cake is just the overall attention to detail
and build quality. It feels like a swiss vault. Nothing looks or feels cheap.
And it's IMO the most beautiful looking bike out there. I can't stop giving her
the look back.
I still very much love my CBR. The midrange punch, and overall balance can't be beat. But in contrast to
the RSV4, it just feels "soul less" I guess you could say.
No................thats a Motorcycle, this is what an Italian Girlfriend would look like!!

If the minimum wasn't good enough, it wouldn't be the minimum.

I am not condescending of Japanese bikes because they certainly would be my choice if I was club racing or building a track only bike. The Japanese bikes just have a much greater secondary market, (ie: ebay, craigslists, etc.) for parts and spares should an incident occur. The RSV4 parts are just much harder to find, and when you do, they tend to be a costlier. Crashing is a lifestyle if you're riding like you mean it on a racetrack.
Although the Italians have come a long ways in terms of reliability and durability, they are still not quite on par with the Japanese manufacturers. It's not to say that bikes from Japan never have issues, but it seems that from my stay on this forum, our bikes tend to have some recurring TPS, MAP sensor failures, oil leaks, cam chain rattling, issues. Also, our ECU gestapo that seems to have left many a rider stranded rather than allowing for a limp home mode.
For passion and charisma though, there is nothing like an Italian bike. From the sounds, the styling, and the feel, the RSV4 just gushes personality. Japanese bikes feel clinical and appliance-like in comparison. There's nothing wrong with that, and any supersport/superbike is clearly a rush to ride fast. It's just the x-factor that bikes like the RSV4 possess that stirs the soul even when you're just booting around your local favourite twisties.
nice color nice exhaust
