Why does that Yamaha have a Honda sticker on it? And why won't it get off my screen.

That 600rr fender is a bother. How would you eliminate all that garbage without losing the tail light?

I like them all. Especially the VTR1200F. Kinda makes me moist.The frame on the CB1000 looks like it'd be a real pain in the ass for service.

hmm does that have the CBR 1000 RR engine in it? like the europe restricted CBF1000 (not that i would get that one instead of a niner , aas it looks like a FZ1, but I wouldn't mind a true naked niner with more horsepower) I'll find a way to get rid of the fender.

Looks like crap needs to be really naked, with more power. Like Teufelchen said.

it's a chop based on rumors...take it all w/a grain of salt

the idea would be to have the 1krr lump and then the discussion immediate proceeds to chasis/frame....the monobackbone from the 900hornet won't make it and so a new design is needed, borrowing heavily from the existing sportbike?? who knows....i'd rather see a spondon built titanium spine myself


w/ the paris show in the books, i don't expect any news out of intermot but hey, oct has shown us some action in the past...

Who knows what we'll actually see, but those are interesting. I actually like the styling of the 600 Hornet better than the 1000.

I'll take a VTR1200F and a Varadero thank you.

The Varadero is at least real, alive and breathing. It's just across a lot of water.

A Superhawk update like that VTR would be awesome.

Well if Raptors and Rockets says it's true then it MUST be true! Everyone knows how accurate they are with their news and pictures.

Kinda like how they told us about the 700cc SV650 this year. Yup, they were only off by 50cc's. That's pretty accurate, right?

I can't believe people still read that crap. Maybe they will have a picture of Bigfoot riding the new Honda soon.
