S1000R to S1000RR
« on: July 12, 2018, 04:06:31 PM »
So I'm planning on trading in my 16 R (which i love) and picking up a 18 RR this winter.

Has anyone made the switch. or went the opposite direction. Curious to hear some input.

Cheers,
-Vito

It is an idea I keep toying with, however I always change my mind when I actually go and sit on an RR again.

I think my days of riding true sportsbikes on the road may well be done now. The single R offers 90% of what the RR does, but in a much comfier package.

As a second bike purely for the track? Then absolutely it would be RR over R .... But then again it would probably be R1 over the RR if it ever did come down to that decision.

Just ended my love affair with sportsbikes, the modern super nakeds are better in every situation on the road accept 150+ down the bypass and that no longer interests me BUT if pushed to choose a sportsbike, it would be a Ducati, not the new V4 thou, I much prefer the V twin Panigale finale edition.

I went the other way (RR to R).

I wrote a post about the two: https://www.s1000r.co.uk/index.php/topic,6633.msg75792.html#msg75792

My main reason i am entertaining this is b/c ive been going to the track more and more. I definitly notice the flickability of the R in the twisties and i love it but..... now that i'm finding myself in more situtions going over 120mph (on the track).... the gearing and wind protection is noticable when compared to the RR.

my mind when I think of how good the bike is geared urban riding.

I suppose if I could have only one bike and wanted to do track days, then I would have to jettison the R in favor of a supersport. But then maybe it wouldn't be the double R. Maybe an R1m? or Panigale.

I recently put 2,000km on a 2018 RR for testing purposes, including some on track riding with the CSS.

Afterwards I switched back to my 2017 R.

For a road bike with occasional track usage, I'd have the R.

For mostly track riding where I wanted to get serious about going as fast as possible, I'd have an RR.

RR is a phenomenal machine but focused in the way most sportsbikes are. The R is a better all-round bike but even when you venture on track, i'd say its more fun to ride.
