each has its pros

 

CBR reigns for its power and reliability. Till then RVF steps in to secure the poles mainly of its with a better centered weight distribution n great agility along with a good mid-range power of a V4.

 

I will take an RVF if I frequent the track. A CBR is still fine overall in maintainence and track sessions. Once you ride the hurricance you will appreciate the agility of an RVF!

 

Cheers.. my 2 cents worth

erm...r u saying CBR is not a gd track bike as RVF ??? hmm...

y?

 

hurricane's handling very much worse than RVF?

how much worst, i have no quantifyable gauge. But the CBR is a ad heavier than the RVF. The wieght distribution ain't very centered. When changin gdirections fast, like a tight chicane, the hurricane needs more effort as compared to the RVF. This is personally what I experience when i took a fast tight chicane on the track.

 

But one thing to compensate is that that the stock hurricane's torq is pretty high due to a larger rear sprocket. Very good usable power on the exit, somewhere about 10k rpm

 

Did you experience the same phenomena?

Ride hard & safe...

oh nono.. i am not sayin CBR is not a good track bike as an RVF. I meant the bring out each bike pros and cons, highlighting the RVF as more prefered bike due to the handling and manoeverity

 

oh yah forgot o add the the inverted forks adds to the front lateral rigidity.

Ride hard & safe...

get the bike according to your love and desire for it.

 

no 2nds, 3rds. if u love it, it will all be worth it. iz just like the recent debate about babies making. even if govt give yr kid free education, free babysitiing, free milk supply, it will not be worth it if you dun love kids.

 

i noe :offtopic: la... just an analogy in this case.

 

for me, RVf is the right bike for me coz i love it for its v4 engine exclusivity. the sound of the engine 'wreeee---ing" away is sensational (read:high).

 

its manuverebility as mentioned just sweetens the whole package. it was the epitome of HRC research efforts for SBK in 94. Its technology slowly trickles down to the street level, giving birth to the street legal RC 45 ( RVF 750). with Japan's past uptight liscensing laws restricting most bikers to 400ccs, Honda made no efforts unspared to homogate the RVF's technological acheivements been known to these genereal biker populations.

 

Thus they made the minature RVF 400 (NC 35) to satisfy the home markets's thirst for SBK dreams.

The NC is everything that its big brother RC45 is....just in a smaller package but built just as handsomely.

 

ppl say Rvfs are expensive. but u see, it is a representation of R&D at the forefront of racing developement been trickle down to street users. just like the F1 technology of 10 years ago been present only in today's sportscars. or perhaps the likely event of MotoGp's triumpant RCV 211 been developed into a street legal version few years later.

 

that is the RVF story. i can go on about its cousins the NC30s but its pointless.

 

the thing is ; V4 engines are expensive to produce. naturally this will reflect in the machine's cost price. so live with it, if u love the throb of a vee engine, its gg to cost u abit.

 

and for me, the rvf is a companion for at least the next 3 years and i 've no regrets so far.

 

reliabilty issue? someone once said..."define reliabilty" to a lamer who kept shooting down RVFs. and i agree. because i believe no matter what machine u ride, the bike will treat u the way u treat it. treat it like trash and it'll give u shitloads of probs. treat it with care and it 'll reward u with a lifetime of riding joy.

 

my $1 worth of opinions.
