Q. Which one is better in terms of road presence, firing and heaviness Yamaha R1, Kawasaki H2R or Ducati PanigaleV4 - YZF R1M?
  • Ducati panigale v4s is the current winner in road and track with the 4 cylinder inline engine ..with the engine bored to deliver 200 plus horse power with all driving modes including the slide control mode is value for money..kawazaki H2R if you need crazy speed in a straight track..R1M..is close to the two..but lacks the appeal of a panigale. but an ysmaha is an Yamaha .so its upto you.
  • All three-speed hungry monsters are in the mainstream competition in terms of performance but in terms of pick-up, Ducati takes the cake. with massive 220 PS@ 15200rpm. But if you need more track-ready features then Yamaha R1 is the bike for you whereas, in the looks, department Kawasaki ninja H2R will the best among the three. But before the final decisions suggest you take a test drive of both the vehicles to understand the power and comfort better.Ducati Panigale V4 vs Kawasaki Ninja H2 vs Yamaha YZF R1 Comparison:- https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/ducati-panigale-v4-vs-kawasaki-ninja-h2-vs-yamaha-yzf-r1
