Impossible you say? Yeah, maybe on the track where top riders in AMA Pro Racing’s XR1200 class lap about six seconds slower than the entry-level Supersport 600s. But the street isn’t the track, Scooter, and every little knife-edged advantage that’s essential at Rattlesnake Raceway isn’t actually necessary to dispatch vermin at Deals Gap. Besides, on the street, looks, vibe, and cool are, well, cool. If you don’t believe it, check out the hipsters on their primer-black $1500 café specials and see what kind of action they get. OK, maybe you don’t want to know about that. But the point is, presentation does count. And the SP1200RR has it—big time.
