You know you want a new motorcycle.

  • Mad4TheCrest

    I took this to mean ‘own’ or at least have for an extended test, and for me that would be the H2 SX because i’m curious about living with a supercharged, comfier sportbike. I sure would like the Duc V4 at my disposal for a day for sheer grins, but I am pretty sure I know what living with it would be like.

  • hasty hughie

    aaah what happened to the new BMW s1000rr, did I miss it somewhere?

  • FreeDominion

    The white arrow. The only somewhat fresh design in the group, though even that one is only mildly interesting. All the other designs are simply sterile or overdone. Admittedly, my tastes always lean away from the general societal direction.

    The z900rs is also interesting simply because, rather than make a modern retro, they made a near-replica retro.. with modern tech. UJM design with reliable fuel injection. I like it.

  • Gruf Rude

    The Honda, because it appears to be the modern iteration of what I built for myself from the CB750 back in the early 70s . . .

    • john burns

      is it just power of suggestion since i used Honda for lead photo? It was my fave at EICMA…

      • Gruf Rude

        Look at the bike in my avatar.

      • Gruf Rude

        I really liked my son’s 919, and if my memory serves, you did too: “… first time my tires went off on the street.”

        • Alaskan18724

          My son had two 919s, both asphalt black, both wonderful motorcycles. I was riding Harleys at the time. The 919s were enough to get me in trouble, if I wanted to go there. Plus, they were good-looking machines.

      • lennon2017

        I’m not one to knock a company so hard about its choice of can design as to say no sale!, but that Honda is severely hindered there. Quite a honker. The Kawasaki Z900 RS (green espesh) on the other hand, is an ample counterpunch to Triumph’s Street Cup and Ducati’s Cafe Scrambler and Yamaha’s bigger XSR.

    • Born to Ride

      I’m not seeing any reason not to buy that Honda. I mean, I’d have preferred they left the rear tire a 180 for the lightness of steering since it’s a roadster and not a track bike. I guess some people want that fatty rear tire though.

      • Gabriel Owens

        I love mine. Ride it daily.

  • Gabriel Owens

    1. Kawasaki 900rs cafe
    2. Yamaha 900 tracer gt
    3. Kawasaki ninja h2 sport tourer
    4. Vitpilen 701
    5. Honda Monkey. Lol. But seriously, i want one.

    Ordered in priority that I would likely purchase. Im still sporting major chub from this years eicma.

    • Born to Ride

      I’m guessing the Honda didn’t make the list cuz you’ve already got one?

      • Gabriel Owens

        Awe….you know me so well.

  • Sentinel

    Kawasaki Z900RS for me. I’m really disappointed in the new Honda CB1000R.

    • Born to Ride

      I’m so confused by this sentiment sentinel. If you just said, “it’s ugly and I hate what they did to it’s beautiful origami style” I would understand that it’s just a matter of personal preference. But compared to the Z900 it really has the same riding position and potential for aftermarket windscreens, saddles, and luggage. Why the hate bro?

      • Lewis

        Wait until the pricing comes out. I am buying the 900RS unless there is a major pricing surprise. My uneducated guess on price for the CB is $12,999. I expect the RS to be $10,299, again an uneducated guess. I actually like the CB, just not as much as the RS and then there will be that price difference.

        • Born to Ride

          I’ve heard rumination in the interwebs of a $12k price tag for the Z. If the CB is only 13 grand, it doesn’t matter what the Z costs I’m getting the Honda.

          • Lewis

            Those rumors you speak of may have credence, I saw that Kawasaki has the RS on their Canadian site for $12999. That means over $12K here for sure.

          • Born to Ride

            I think 10,999 is what it’ll be for the basic, 11,500 for the SE, and 12 for the Cafe.

  • Alaskan18724

    Toss up—Honda CB1000R and Kawasaki Z900RS Cafe. Could also go Ducati Scrambler 1100, if I was in a mood.

    • Born to Ride

      I might could see choosing the scrambler over a cruiser or a bonneville, but the roadsters are bringing so much more to the table for me. Maybe if Ducati massaged 90rwhp out of the 1100evo engine i would be interested. But as it sits I’d rather have the 800 and fix up the suspension and dial in the accessories for the same money.

      • Alaskan18724

        I’m pretty much in the same boat, but I saw that Scrambler and it hit both the roadster button and–God help me–the Honda MiniTrail (Monkey) button. Kill me know.

  • B.Hoop

    H2.
    Hard luggage, centerstand, 200 horsepower…

    • Born to Ride

      That’s a compelling argument if there ever was one. But I doubt I could afford the insurance.

      • B.Hoop

        Well yeah, there is that potential issue. I’m closing in on 50 though, so hopefully it wouldn’t be too outrageous .

    • John B.

      Did you see the MO article about the price? Under $20 grand would make this motorcycle worth a look. I was expecting $25-$30k.

    • Gabriel Owens

      Chain drive.

      • B.Hoop

        That’s why the centerstand is a beautiful thing.

        • TronSheridan

          As is the SSS.

  • Tanner

  • DickRuble

    No option to vote for the NC750x? Ya know, the one with heated grips, cruise control, automatic shifting?

    • Born to Ride

      I thought you where #boycottinghonda? Or was that to be some sort of tongue-in-buttcheek joke?

    • Gabriel Owens

      Only shaft drive away from being a dream machine.

    • DL Nielsen

      This bike’s on my radar, too. Out of all the new Hondas this year, it’s this one or the Gold Wing bagger. (Speaking of which . . .Have you seen Honda’s new ad? Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Onzz5sP6C3I)
      I also like the Yamaha Tracer 900 GT and Kawasaki H2 SX. I have eclectic tastes. Mainly if it has two wheels and an engine . . . . . .

      • Gabriel Owens

        And bags apparently

        • DL Nielsen

          Well, those too, I guess. They come in handy.

  • Matt O

    Assuming I didn’t have to pay insurance or maintenance cost (read as tires) the H2 is ideal but not rational. The Z900 is calling my name, I might actually buy one.

  • JMDGT

    As an old Honda guy the CB1000R is long overdue. It is more than its styling. Good for Honda. More importantly good for us.

  • HazardtoMyself

    If I have to buy it, I will take the Kawi please.

    If MO just wants to give away one of these bikes, then I will take the H2. Then again if free, one of those Arch bikes might be interesting.

    • Born to Ride

      If the Arch purchase got me 3-gun shooting lessons with John Wick, I’d bust out the Amex…

  • The Vitpilen, 100%. The Duke if I can’t have the Vit.

  • Travis Stanley

    Z900 RS is my pick. I would have went with the CB300R if it was an option.

  • Auphliam

    That’s a very tough call. That Honda looks the tits, but so too does that z900. Tough choice. In the end, I’d probably go with the Kaw but by the slightest of margins.

    • Born to Ride

      If the Kawi is $10k and the Honda is $15k, I may go Kawi pending some test rides. The fit n finish on that Honda is just head and shoulders above for me.

      • Auphliam

        Yeah, they’re both just so close. Perhaps because the Kaw’s style harkens back to a time when I first really started getting into street bikes is why it appeals so much to me visually. Like you said, the price difference could be a deciding factor, and that Honda is a tough looking machine. In the end, I could probably go either way and not feel too disappointed with my choice.

        • Born to Ride

          Kawi brought to the table exactly what I have been wanting out of a Japanese bike for years. Honda took that desire, and blew it out of the water. Like I said, the only thing disappointing to me is the rear tire/wheel size, and potentially the price, and the fact that they aren’t shipping till mid next year.

  • kenneth_moore

    The H2 GT. Did you really need to ask?

  • Jason

    Yamaha NIken

  • Fast2win

    The Indian FTR1200 is sweet. Too bad it’s not available.

  • Eric

    You left off the Guzzi 850 or I would have voted for it. Z900 is a close 2nd.

  • TronSheridan

    H2 SX SE. Put a deposit on one last week.
