Thats kinda neat. The 600 lapped an entire second faster than the R1 consistently.

Before you look at the times and point out the first couple tires lap times, check out who's riding the bikes. Not Ian.

apparently the rider on the gix has true game...

beating a skilled rider on an r1 requires ALOT of skill on a 600ss.
the track was probably very tight, but still...
goes to show you don't need a litre to be fast.

Excellent post! When did that test come out?
Roadracing News has a similar tire (tyre?) test in this month's issue.
Quality tire tests seem to be few and far between.

600ss do quite well against b***** bikes on many tracks. So do 250 'smokers and SuperMotards.
The track is the great equalizer.
