I love those things.

Lately I've been missing my old UJM. It was perfect for just hopping on and exploring the roads, especially with pretty girl on the back seat. Since I've traded up to a ZX she has ridden with me once, just not the same.

I think a new Bonnie with the two to one pipe and a few sporty mods would be perfect. Classic looks, modern reliability, and following the rule of riding a slow bike fast, should be fun to strafe the mountain roads on.



The blue and white two tone is Damn sharp too.

My plan in the spring is to do this for a commuter with the DCT. (Would much rather prefer it if Honda bumps it to a 750.)



And this for my fun bike.

Put me down for the FZ also. Put a little smoke windshield on it and I'm golden.

SWEET! I'm not a fan of sportbikes or fairings but that looks awesome...especially in red!

I can't even afford the only other sportbike I like (the RC8R), much less the $75,000 price tag on this one.

Still pineing for a FE570 with some supermoto wheels, or an AEF500 also set up as a supermoto.

An R6 with a 600cc etec 2 stroke CVT snowmobile motor is my dream bike right now.

A nice 2 smoker in anything with relatively current suspension and frame would be sweet.

A Suzuki S40 actually. Seems like a simple, cheap, pretty good looking backroad lazy cruise bike.

I'm with you there. T100 or Scrambler, W650 or 800, and for me a V7 Classic or Stone are all bikes I could live with.

My butt hurts just looking at that seat. For $75k you'd think they would do more than put a $.95 strip of foam on there for a saddle.

My eyes ache from the oragami styling gone wrong.
Is anyone going to plunk down 40K to reserve one ?
From the land of Belarus tractors,ask a farmer about their qualities.And Let's not forget Ural, fine bikes for a tinkerer.
No where did I see what engine will give power to this new World Beater.

It is a Honda CBR 1000 with some different fairings and some of the stupidest electronics ever slapped on a bike (lane change vibration warning, the bike applies full brakes on its own if you are coming too close to a car in front, the CPU cuts off the throttle if the bike decides you are "losing control" - all that but it does not have traction control ).

I would not ride it if they paid ME 75 grand...

A Motus would be my choice over that and pocket the change.
