I want one sooo bad! I currently ride a CBR 600. I test drove the S1000rr in the spring and was amazed. I literally said "this bike drives like a BMW" when I was done with the ride. I read an article that said this bike is so amazing that several ridding schools have moved from CBR600s to S1000rr's and this improved their students times and reduced the amount of crashes by 50%!

Here is my current bike:

I had the cbr1000rr before but it felt way small and cramped, it did turn easier than the s1000rr.

I thought I was done with sport bikes when I sold my '05 R1 last year, but this bike along with the Aprilia RSV4 R APRC have me questioning my decision.

I like that the S1000 has a 3-year warranty too.
