    Cb1000r - 2014 abs impressive riders review in mcn group test

    There's group test in this weeks MCN pitching the MT09 against the CB1000R, Diversion and GSXR6 - an odd combo, but the riders made unanimous comments about the ride-ability and impression the bike left as the control entry level naked

    I know this will be a honeytrap for the CB haters that amazingly visit this site but here we go :

    I am going to buy it tomorrow, agree it is an odd combo, i would have thought a fair test would have been against the new Z1000, Speed Triple and the BMW S1000R, as price wise they are all around the £10k mark whereas the MT-09/Diversion is more around the Honda Hornet price bracket.

    The way I read it they were comparing style of bike rather than bike against bike. I think its because yamaha are pushing the mt as a do it all bike. Still an interesting read.

    Z1000 (maybe) and Trip deffo as they are still 'proper' bikes - the BMW is almost completely ride by wire with rider 'interference' and way too much power for the concept bracket the CB is in ...

    I wonder where the good old girl would come in that test!!! Radial brakes (ABS), and plush quality suspension, Really?

    Wasn't it less than a week ago that MCN was full of shit according to you guys.

    Simon and Neville sound as if they know what they're talking about!!
