Rossi on a Hornet 919

YouTube - HONDA Hornet 900 (Rossi ver.)

Cool little video I found. I will go ahead and assume it is a promo for the Hornet in Italy.

Sorry I didn't have the time to go through every post and find the exact one posted 4 years ago. But as Lemonhead's 2000 post said "Ok, so maybe it was a double. So what. Still cool."

Pile driven ass? I'm not good with those terms but that would be my guess.

...and here in the USA the bike got NUTHIN' in the way of advertisement!
I never saw anything on the 919 except the occasional test in a magazine.

It's the Roman Legion crap that forums seem to favor. A legion is made of 10 Cohorts which are in turn made up of 6 Centuria. The Pilus Posterior commanded the 2nd Centuria of Cohorts 2-10. Or something like that. Basically equivalent to a modern day Company Commander in the Army.

Congratulations hero

I don't care how many times it's been here, that's the 1st for me to see.

The bike didn't sell well, because folks like John Burns, Mitch Boemn, and other cycle journalists said it was too high, too slow, and others negs about it. If it's from Europe or Buell (past tense) it's great, if not, well it's a dog.
To me the best kept dog secret in the US.
Can anyone say all-rounder?
