I come from a dirt and track background. I've been riding for 35+ years now. To tell me that ABS is another weapon in my arsenal is like giving me heated grips that I'll never use.

A CB750 would have been nice.

ABS - I've never had it, never will. It cannot perform properly on loose dirt and gravel. Only thing it's good at is a straight line wet stop. If you don't have...

Honda has the 2013 CB1100 out now. I sat on it in the showroom. Feels great. Feels narrow and light for such displacement. The price of $10k USD makes this a Honda best value of the decade, IMO.

Wah, wah, wah...

I started reading this thread and immediately the bad taste of whining ex-SV owners overwhelmed my taste buds.

It's not the styling that sucks about the Gladius. God knows there were a ton of...

I have both the Uclear HBC100 and the Sena SMH10.

The UClear is a nice concept, but they simply dropped the ball when it comes to performance and options.

Speculation is futile...

Looks like a Gladius 250 to me.

That being said, I didn't think that the Gladius 650, now the SFV650 (gone are the SV650's), is a bad looking bike.
