To me it does not seem logical to compare the k1200s to a sport bike. The K1200S was not designed for what the R1, GSXR, cbr1000rr and 999S are designed for. The K is an excellent bike, i love mine, but it is not a sport/race bike. It has good power but the weight and the wheelbase are not compatible for top level racing. Take a look at what races in AMA and Motogp, I have never seen a K bike there. Are we thinking that we can beat a sport bike or just interested in how close the the K bikes does? Please help me understand the relevance in the comparison. Thanks.
