Which litre bike??

Recommended Posts

Evening all. Considering getting back into racing and I'm in the market for a new litre bike (stock). Any opinions on which people prefer?? Previous bike was an S1000rr so fancy something different, leaning towards the R1 for no particular reason. Options are 

GSXR 1000 - 2017+

R1 - 2015/6+

ZX10 - 2016+

Budget £15k ish

Probably opening a can of worms here but after real opinions, preferably from people who have ridden these.

@mdg300 Can't help on the opinion side but it's worth keeping your eye on Racebuykz, there are some seriously well sorted Superstock 1000 bikes from the BSB paddock up for sale on there - Hawk Suzukis, Keith Farmer and Alastair Seeley Tyco BMWs, Ten Kate Hondas, a few R1s and some MSS Kawasakis too. Definitely worth a look.

For what it's worth, a fair few racers who have ridden them say the R1 handles a lot like an R6 or smaller bike, just with more power. Seems to go very well.
