Lets play a little game...

Insipired by something someone said in a thread about the 2013 models and people not being able to tell bikes apart without the stickers. Thought that would make for a fun game so I spent about 10 minutes in photoshop and here we go.

Ok, I'm not the best at this, but here I go:

1- GSXR 600 (not sure about displacement, but sure about model and brand -Suzuki)
2- Triumph Daytona 675
3- Yamaha R1
4- Honda CBR 600RR
5- Honda CBR 1000RR
6- Yamaha R6
7- Not sure, Kawasaki ZX6, the new 636? Not sure.
8- GSXR 1000 I'm guessing. Looks like a GSXR

Bunch of functionally indistinguishable Japanese sportbikes, all built to exactly the same formulae, plus I assume there's a Triumph hidden in there somewhere.

Take the decals off an RSV4 and it looks the same from the side as all the jap bikes too.

Yet for some reason people think it's unique...

This is retarded easy.

1) Suzuki GSXR 1000
2) Triumph Daytona 675R
3) Yamaha YZF-R1
4) Honda CBR600RR
5) Honda CBR1000RR
6) Yamaha YZF-R6
7) Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
8) Suzuki GSXR 600

Number 1 looked like a Kawasaki ZX6R if you look at the head, but the exhaust is different.

I'd be that someone, but I didnt only mean the 2013 models. Hell throw in a few from the last 3 years. Blur you eyes a little and those all might as well be the same bike.

I would argue that the most instantly recognizable faired sport bike is probably...
Love it, hate it, you still know what it is when you see it lol.

Take off the decals and obvious seat cowl and it looks like a 2012 gsxr1000.

The ducati 1098/848 is my choice for most recognizable. But I follow sportbikes enough to look at just the head and exhaust to instantly know what it is. Aftermarket stuff too.

I don't know about the above post but I believe that the RC-51 has the busa on in that arena. I just bought a motorcycle cover brand new that had a RC on the box as the "bike model" for the company. You see these RC's everywhere when looking at advertisements.

Every time I see the RVT thing on the side of the RC51 I think of this:

I'm definitely in the category of people who need stickers and badges to recognize a lot of bikes! I looked through those pictures and could only pick out the Daytona with absolute certainty... and that was only because of the new incredibly ugly 'eye shadow' they gave the new model.


I know I'm not alone here either... At least judging by how many people, including knowledgeable (I would assume) riders at track days, would have no idea I was on a Ninja 250. Most would guess it was some type of 600 (well, I was pretty suspect once they saw me in the straights though!).

Strip the decals, and it could be mistaken for a CBR F4.
