2012 r1

the crossplane generation is amazing. destroys all other r1s from bottom end. as we know all the power was upstairs on previous 1s. once you get over the lazy sneeze tone and realise your goin quick it just clicks. cant ride it like a traditional 4. when the engine feels like its labouring just grab a big right hand full and it pulls from almost anywhere in its rev range. love it!!!
