Maybe a few of our member in Cali might buy on and give us a comparison to the Triumph Speed Triple, 919, SVXXXX and other naked standards. Well for that matter if we have any member in England that wants to give us first impressions, I would be all ears?!?!?!

I'd like to hear a ride report on this bike as well. I don't know how they'd stack up against a 919 or an SV650, but i'd think a good comparison would be the new T100 Triumph Bonneville. I wouldn't mind getting one of the Commando's as a 2nd bike, I might like it good enough for it to take pride of place over my trusty 919!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Looks really cool. Ohlins suspense and carbon fiber wheels, too. No wonder it costs so much.
