The urban jungle can play hell on riders of narrowly focused sportbikes. Remember what we've written about almost every iteration of Ducati superbikes? Super standards, on the other hand, live for the city. All of these bikes leap off the line with authority. The FZ1 is the quickest with the ZRX right behind until approximately 50 mph, where the FZ1 takes off, but don't rule out the Bandit. The Suzuki makes up for its comparative lack of jam by having the easiest to modulate throttle. In the roll-on, hold it neutral, roll it off and then back on world of the evening bump and grind, this feature pays more dividends than just snapping off the line. Of course, weight also plays a factor in directional changes--both forward and side-to-side. The Yamaha, with its light weight, not only launches quicker, but also feels a bit more maneuverable. On Main Street, where situations can change in the blink of an eye, being able to change lines or slow down immediately pays big dividends. The ZRX feels like the smallest of the bikes, thanks to the short reach to the bar afforded by the narrow, classically styled tank. So, even though the ZRX weighs 30 pounds more than the FZ1, it can turn almost as quickly. The Bandit, despite having the shortest wheelbase by almost one inch, feels the longest and steers slower than the others.
