    Default Honda CBR 600 vs Ducati 748 which is quickest

    Lo all,
    My m8 has just traded his CBR 600 for a 748,
    strange thing is on paper the 748 seems lower BHP (possibly slower than the CBR) please could any one confirm which is the quickest / best Machine as I think the differences in terms of performance are marginal at best and not worth all the extra expense.
    please help me out with this interesting question as I'm a noob with bikes TIA..

    cbr 600 is the better bike to live with / maintain.

    748's are very expensive to run and are very uncomfortable to ride for any length of time.

    dukes dont need the extra power 'cos they go round corners a lot faster and have a smoother and steeper power curve
