The feeling is different. When you compare with a 600RR for example, you will feel much more torque in the low - medium end in the Ninja. The 600 has the performance in high's RPM. I like more the power obviously in my Ninja 1000. Now if you compare with a GSX-R 1000 is another story. The GSX is more powerful bike overall. But is not a touring or commute bike. You will be tired from the driving position. I like the performance but i am realistic. We don’t want that for every day driving or commute. May be for a day on the track or a short trip will be fun or for show off. I am very happy with the performance in my ninja 1000 and very happy with how comfortable is.
