Ever wonder why they didn't bother to bring the X11 out here? Yah, me too.

Default One more thing

The 929 makes about 126hp (MO's dyno). Why on earth did you expect the Hornet to make as much, since it's down 10cc's and retuned? The FZ1 doesn't make as much as a YZF-R1, and the ZRX doesn't make as much as a ZX-11. Why should the Hornet be different?



More importantly, why am I arguing real-world ideas with someone who rides a Hayabusa?

Lol! You tell em! )



I love the Hornet, it looks sublime and has a nice engine (ONLY 108? Good grief, that's plenty for me!). Plus I love symmetry (the dual pipes).



Although I never understood why they didn't bring at least the X11 if not the CB1300 and Hornet 600...

I'm definitly with you about the new VFR styling. I saw artists conceptions about the '02 VFR back in '99 in a motorcycle publication, and rushed out to by a '99. I like the look of the older VFR (my opinion) better. Although, I would love to lose as much weight on my bike as the '02 has lost, and add the V-TEC. I only hope for Honda and the VFR heritage, that it regains Bike of the Year honors.

How informed of you...yeah, I must be a knuckledragging idiot because I ride a Busa. Are you one of these people who classify people by what they ride? If so...I'm truly sorry for you.

Default Actually...

...it has more to do with technical Italian. They use different terms for parts that simply aren't English words. Ask anyone with an older Ducati for an English language shop manual - yikes!
