The Repsol rep is cool. I really like that one. The red/white one is nice also. I think the other ones have a little too much bling for my taste.

Refreshing is a good description. And I second why can't that be the 2008?

I like them all. The red and white one is awesome. The chrome one is calling to me though. That black and white one looks really good as well. Oh big Honda.....We know it is a little late for 08, but still got plenty of time for 09.

How come Europe figured out how awesome the 9r is and the US would rather ride clunky cruisers? Thus no US 08' 599/919.

If they would have painted the 919 like those bikes instead of matte black, matte grey, and urine, Honda would have sold a lot more bikes.

Are you listening, Honda? A naked bike with a race rep lookin paint job WORKS!

Take the 600RR, Dont detune it, put a handlebar on it, lower the pegs an inch and a half, paint it bright and racey, and you won't be able to make enough of em. I'll take the 1st one.

Yeah good point I have NEVER watched a NASCAR race.

All reviews must include the slalom course and braking times (solo and 2up), then folks would get educated why sport nakeds rule.

I believe all three of those are the new 599s

When I saw that headlight in SuperBike mag last month I started thinking of how to get one to put on my 9er, prob would be a pita considering its integrated into the gauges and cost a bundle since they are only in europe and brand new

Same here. Someone started an e-mail petition to Speed about the lack of coverage of the WRC. There was close to 100,000 sigs on there. They seemed to ignore it though. Bastids. I want my WRC. F--- going fast and turning left.


Mmmmmmm..... French Women. One of the few good things from France.

Not that I'm uninterested in French chicks armpits but...Back on track, Thanks for the link. Those are awesome bikes. I also like the Repsol replica and the red/white one.
