Very nice. Now let's bring the MV Agusta Brutale serie oro here.

You are too funny!! My office mates must think I'm smoking some homegrown I'm laughing so hard.

Totally awesome. I want one. I have a gorgeous black Beemer R which I love to death, specially after fitting a decent can. But this could tempt me to infidelity.

You might want to read a bit more closely:

"The stealth bomber theme continues with a matte black paint overdose... Kevlar-carbon covers protect the radiator and water overflow tank..."

Nothing about K-Cf covers on the gas tank, which is what I was talking about.

O.K. the other reason (the REAL reason!) is the price tag. I really like the stock Falco, demo'd one at Laguna Seca, and I can't afford it -$10,999, much less the extra $1,999 the kit cost.

God D*** ! I LOVE Motorcycles
So little money, so many lust object bikes.

Good "old" days my ass, these are the good days.

Anybody else feel like a kid in a candy store, when you look at what's available today?

Re: 2003 ZX-6R spy photos.
Thank you, KPaul, for my first look at my next bike!! -not sure if my '98 6R that i've had from new will ever forgive me, especially since I've only just put on an arrow full system etc...

Mind you, rim-mounted brakes would be a bunch cooler than radial brakes, but lets see it in the phlesh, eh?

No Question
This is the golden age of motorcycles. There are dozens of bikes that I would love to have. I used be a car nut, lusting after Ferraris and the like, not that I could ever afford one. Now cars have gotten boring. They are too perfect. You are completely insolated from your environment. Motorcycles are where my passion is. The thing I love most is no matter what bike I may lust over, I can have it if I REALLY want it. (Very few exceptions, of course. Like I can't have the H-D VR1000). Don't get me wrong $17 grand seems ridiculous for a 'toy' and I am unable to justify buying that MV Agusta... to my wife.

Honda followed Ducati, though.

Re: No Question
If and when the Brutale is available... the Tuono loses it's appeal. She does look sexy though - there's nothing like a skimpy black bikini....fairing, that is.
