The R1's ugliness demands that it stay in front.

Seeing that ugly face in the rear-view mirror would cause other riders to crash.

No. This is the fastest bike, according to me lol :D

But seriously, it is. Yamaha have de-throned BMW. Maybe only the most expensive Ducatis can compete with this for laptimes.

As far as straight line - there is just one king and it's the Kawasaki H2. No discussion.
