Coming from a duke 390 its just mind boggling. Owning a super-bike like this just makes you feel like you are riding a roller coaster. The power it generates is amazing. Although comparing it to the gsxr1000, zx10r, r1 it makes less power. About 189~bhp but the way it delivers the power is its best part. Just winkle the throttle and it flies, it's that powerful.
For owning it more than 1 year and riding it 4857 kms i haven't really known the full potential of the bike yet as most of the time the bike spends in traffic and i take on occasional weekend rides as well. About 50%50% you can say. Whenever i see an empty stretch i just pull my baby blade and it just takes off making me mad.
Even if i comedown to speeds like 60 i feel like i am as still 180-200kmph. That's how the bike makes me feel. Looks is upto personal choice but the only thing i didn't consider the gsxr is the front end. I love bikes with dual lights and the blade is just awesome to look at. Everyone knows how mumbai traffic is and my blade hardly stalls. Maintenance is on the higher side as with any other super-bike. Fairings cost you about 10-20k depends o how you damage it.
Talking about the pros and cons
Lets discuss the cons first
1. The bike gets heated very fast
2. Mirrors could be better
3. Seats could be softer
4. A little bit bigger tank could make its way
As you saw above i am just net picking about the bike because the bike is just perfect in every manner
the con i listed earlier that the bike heats up fast but it doesn't stall. Now that's a pro to this bike
Talking about seats, the riding posture and the riding triangle isn't well balanced as with any super-bike
You don't need comfort when you ride such a bike
*if you have the money to buy a super-bike then the fireblade will be the best option for you*
(unless you are a kawasaki fanboy)
