Why are there two threads about this?


Plus, there is a honda board on here, they could give you more of an answer.

It is hard because none of my buddies have these bikes to steal for a ride so im kinda wondering what most prefer.

I had a 929, and I'm glad I got the 600RR in it's place. The only way I would get a liter bike again would be to get a twin.

FYI: I have been riding sportbikes for 12 years now.

If you want an awesome bike for the street, you can't go wrong with the 954/929 (take your pick). Good ergos and power anywhere. If I was seriously into trackdays/racing, I would go with a 600cc bike. The 929/954 ain't too shabby at the track either :) (you just have to watch your right hand a bit more)...........

Well, as someone with a bike like yours, and having ridden a friend's 929 (when stock and modded), I can tell you that it is a great bike....still (relatively) comfortable ergos (hard seat, though), great handling and power!

Nice bike with typical Honda build quality.

I've had some seat time on a 954 and the power was over-kill for me. I'm use to giving a lot of gas out of turns on my R6 and all the 954 would do is spin the wheel when doing that. Like BladeRunner said, if I would get a liter bike it would be a V-twin fo sho!

Owned them both and both are great. Won't go wrong with either. 954 has a little more power and a little sharper steering.

Have had a 929 for about a year now and am very happy. Owned a 600 prior for about a year and half and moved up to the 929.

Have taken it to deal's gap, and although it took me a couple of runs to get use to the difference in handling, I absolutely love it! Have since had a self induced accident (yeah right) and gave me an excuse to dress it up a little more. Have purchased a steering dampner, clip ons, 520 converison kit, 3/4 devil shotgun exhaust, PC3R and it has changed it evermore so for the better.

But, you have to understand, just because I like it, does not mean you will. I have a buddy that has had many different bikes (GSXR 600(2), Honda 929(2), RC51(2), Yamaha R1) and he has yet to find one he wants to "settle" down with.

In the end, I am very happy with the way the bike handles and the power it provides.

Good luck!!

I've owned an Erion 929, and it was a great bike. I wouldn't bypass a good deal on a 929 in order to buy a 954. Sure, it has more power, but it's not NECESSARY power. Until you can outride than 929, the 954 is overkill...and I don't know ANYONE personally who can outride the 929.

Can you explain why you wouldnt want a liter bike.
I hate to jump to conclusions, but this statement is kind of a window into your attitude, and I don't like what I see. Liter bikes are fun, but the power isn't necessary. I think you'd find that if you took the bike you own now onto the track, you'd realize how little of its potential you actually use. That being said, a new CBR600RR would blow your bike off the road...and you would use even LESS of its potential. A 929 is overkill, in my opinion. You're an adult (I assume), and you can do what you want. You'll probably survive a 929, but it may not be as fun and fulfilling as going fast on a good 600.

I have to agree with this guy. i got a 1000RR and i will tell you the handling is great. sticks to the road at any speed, smooth thru the corners, riding postion is nice for me. i stepped up from a F3 also. i love the power of the bike but i dont use it no where near its potenial. the six00RR would have enough power but hte riding postion wasnt as comfly to me as teh 1000RR. and i figure i could grow into the power it has. a litre bike isnt for everyone. some ppl just cant control themselves with attemptation of power, some ppl can adapt to the power. whatever you decision is be safe.

With my old 929, and me. I came to a point in my riding ability (13 yrs) where I was pushing the bike so hard (mainly on the track) where it started to bite me back. It sucks coming out of a turn and have to watch how much gas you are giving the bike. I got to a point in my ride ability to where I wanted a bike that I could ring it's neck and not worry about it throwing me off (as much).

Anyone can go fast on a 1000, but it takes a really good rider to go fast on a 600.

Take a look around your local twisties/tracks, what are the older, faster riders riding?
