Pretty fair test, I rode the Panigale back to back 6 months ago and felt the SSS to be a real world motorcycle capable of most things and a keeper. I didn't consider the other two!Actually came across this yesterday by accident. BTW - on the track Panigale 959. On a public road Supersport.
Agree on all points. However, on paper, it is the best bike that is in the same class as the SuperSport...on paper. The Italians add a little sump'n sump'n to their bikes that can't be written on paper. The elusive it factor!...did consider the Z1000SX. Loads of power, comfortable, but it was a bit big and heavy for me, I made the right choice.
Another bike coming to the garage? I wouldn't mind giving the H2SX a go, I know it is heavy and would be to wide to filter like I can on the SS, but to feel that power on a bike that I wouldn't need a chiropractor after:grin2:LOVE the all black SX (Ninja 1000)!!
Not for me, lol. I owned an '11 N1K, and traded it for the Hyper. Still love the bike, though, and give it a lot of credit as it's earned it.Another bike coming to the garage?
Thanks for the comparo!! I've always contended that the N1K (Z1000SX for the Euro folk) was a beast!!For those who are interested in some numbers.
Z1000SX weight 235kgs 142hp 82ft/Ibs torque 604hp per ton
VFR weight 242kgs 105hp 55ft/Ibs torque 434hp per ton
959 Panigale weight 200kgs 157hp 79ft/Ibs torque 785hp per ton
Supersport weight 210kgs 113hp 71ft/Ibs torque 538hp per ton
It's only the weight of the SX that put me off. The engine has, what I consider the perfect amount of power for the road. If I was into loads of touring that bike would be top of my list, but for the riding I do the SS is very close to perfect. Another 20% more power (hp & torque) and it would be perfect. But the X factor makes up for that.Thanks for the comparo!! I've always contended that the N1K (Z1000SX for the Euro folk) was a beast!!
