2015 R1 Forks?!

I recently saw a review of the 2015 R1, and noticed that all aspects are on the top of the fork making adjusting everything pretty convenient, since I'm still in the "planning to buy" phase, I was wondering if it would be possible to use those, what do I need to be aware of that could turn this into a no-go (let's assume they can be bought and money isn't a limiting factor)?

If money isnt a limiting factor, everything can be fitted.

But RC forks are pretty long, 755mm, dont know the length of the R1 - if they are much shorter, it would make it a bit more difficult.

Hmm...maybe reusing the tubes and incorporating a longer spring will allow me to retain that valve setup... The brake config (axial) and probably suspension are where my CBR appears to have an advantage; the ABS just spoiled me but I pull the fuse every once in a while to practice my braking should it fail for whatever reason.
