Run after run...this '02 R1 still holds its own extremely well. It's seen later R1's, ZX's, GSX's come and go that still haven't surpassed its unbelievable low/mid range torque.
Some prefer coffee in the morning for a kick, but this machine offers one screaming intense rush of adrenaline, all while maintaining a civil posture on the road.
This much low-end power, combined with the near 600 class size frame and generous mid-range, is well suited to stay out front of the pack long enough to make the others feel silly, staring at your backside and giving it everything they have to catch up.
Only those that have owned one and truly put it to the test can understand how unique this set-up really is.
Upgrades/Accessories: Power Commander PC3USB w/Accelerator Pump, Gutted Exhaust Valve/EXUP, Two Brothers Slip-On and Stock Ratio.
