Mike, Because you've owned a GSXR750 and my son had one, I can use that as a comparison. Acceleration from a standstill is similar with the D955i continually pulling away, acceleration on the road is stronger on the D955i and won't require a downshift or two, not as flickable through the turns as the GSXR yet very stable and willing to do as wanted and braking is similar with the nod to the GSXR.

If you know anyone with a RC51, the two a very similar.

How much do you like your 955i and why do/don't you like it's performance.

Thanks all for bearing with me here.
There's nothing to dislike about the performance of the Daytona,it's a torqe monster..period,when the torqe drop's off at 8500 rpm the 149 h.p. take over and provide's a E ticket ride to 11500 rpm which I ocassionaly see but seldom need.The brake's are very good but even better with a adjustable dogleg lever and HH pad's.Suspender's had to be sorted out for my taste but after that was done properly I was able to use the bike much better.I found the final gearing to be a bit tall for the aera I ride in so changed up to 17/43 gearing and down loaded the factory low pipe T.O.R.S. tune,I now have rollon wheelie's in the first 3 gear's,so performance is a 10.Comfort wasn't to good for me due to clipon bars and a very slick seat,easily cured for under $200 and comfort now a 10 also.I've alway's wanted a Sprint until I recently rode one,now I dont,the Daytona does everything very well and with over 90K mile's on it san's the fairing lower's after a collision I'll keepon keeping on.Alloymotor.
