My thoughts exactly...if it's not too heavy, not to expensive, and handled half-way decently I'd have to give it a look as my next bike. I checked out the 919, but it just didn't hit the mark for me.

Looks like a winner. It beats the dog meat out of the 919 flat black, dull grey thing they send us this side of the Atlantic.

That's a good topic for a poll: Which motorcycle, currently available only on foreign markets, should they bring to the USA.

Or which bike available in the states would you send back and have them try again...

All is not lost. My ZRX will do until Honda, Suzuki, and Yamaha get their act together and send over their "musclebikes".

Hell yeah, thats what we need. Japanese trademark is big fast inline 4's. Thats the design they took on and ran with as their own. Why can't Honda and Suzuki get their heads out of their corporate butts and give us bikes like this and the GSX1400? Who said the only designs that will sell are full-on sportbikes and Panhead era clones? Bikes like this and the Yamaha Warrior are perfect alternatives for people that want real world comfort and performance. I've had the jones for a GSX1400 since I first saw one, I guess I'll have to fly to England ship one back myself. I'll register it as a 1400 Bandit.

Speak for yourself, bub. If I wasn't livin' on Kraft mac & cheese I'd buy a GSX1400 in a second if they ever brought it over here. Sheesh, don't be so pessimistic:)

Here's a concept, why not let the consumer special order bikes like this straight from Japan. Just think, you satisfy the demand for the bike and have no three year old dogs sitting in the dealers back room.

I don't want a Harley or any clones. Never saw the thrill in riding archaic designs...or trying to look like a member of a degenerate subculture.
