Default Re: '03 Hondas Reader Feedback

My God the Honda Valk Rune is goddamn ugly. How do you take a nice looking pure bike and slap art deco...and I mean the bad art deco...the art deco floorlamp thing that your weird uncle who was still single when he was 70 years old had in is living room.



Sigh....when will the honda company go kidnap the yamaha designers.

Default Silver VFR!

Oh please let the VFR be a color other than red next year. Please, please, please!!! If this is a taunt or a Honda UK photo, I will kill.

thim are both manufacturers' claims sven. Their scales are notoriously inaccurate. Bet they weigh within about a Ritz cracker of each other...

I dunno, the zx6rr looks pretty tight for the trac, and the 636 looks sweet for the street...Guess we'll have a better idea on Monday...

Wow, Honda really dropped the ball there. The VTR, CBR1100XX, and the 919 are all in need of replacement. According to motorcyclenews, the SV1000 is a reality. I hope that the insurance companies don't realize that a standard can have performance too!

Hey!! I inherited that lovely lamp! Actually I am so sick of the same old same old vtwin clone, this thing is the biz. Looks like a muscle car on two wheels. Almost weighs as much too but thats not the point, should fit my 6'6" frame like a glove, well the old Valk did.

IF they are keeping the F4i, do we at least get the euro version with the banana seat, centerstand, and other such niceties?

Suzuki will sell every SV1K they build. FZ1 and the 919 are dead now. Now where the hell can I find the money for a SV1k, GS Adventure, Rune, and a KTM 525 EXC?
