Awesome Sean. Honda is serious about this Superbike thing.



Do you think we could do the cruiser-in-a-freefall vs. CBR1000 test?

Who cares if people say you sold out. You got to ride the 1000 before most of the people out there even got to see one in real life. If that is the benefit of selling out then Im selling too!!! As far as the bike goes, I think that the Open class shootout should be good. Maybe Suzuki gets de-throned this year?? I think so.

Wow, I'm posting before KPaul links a political site. Mark this day...



It's been awhile since I've been really excited about a sportbike comparo. This year's open class shootout is killing me, I've been picking up all the British mags as they scoop us on every damn thing and the writing's better to boot, still I search in vain. You guys are the only U.S. bike media source I pay much attention too anymore, and the suspense is driving me nuts. I can't stand it much longer fellas...



In the meantime, what with the bad weather and all, can't you guys find some KLRs, DR-Zs, and XRs to slide around on and wheelie off curbs? It's nothing but rain, snow, freezing rain, more rain, and the occasional frogs from heaven here in the Buckeye state right now and the moto-itch has me scrambling for ointment.



Whaddya say? D-P shootout? Okay, maybe not right now, these things don't just happen in a day, but any comparison would help ease the pain...

The dyno chart is interesting. Looks like the sucker just wants to pull like a V-twin superbike with linear HP gains right up to 11k. No muss, no fuss.



So far, the British rags seem to agree that the ZX10 "feels" faster than the CBR, but who knows how that'll translate into numbers. And then there's the stealthy R1 ... I haven't seen any tests yet, just the Daytona news of DiSalvo putting it on the factory superbikes. This shootout is going to be a hoot. I'll bet you guys could get some serious jack if you auctioned off a guest spot for your comparo. Of course, if you're looking for volunteers ...

Or how about a track day with the Gold Wing and the CBR1000?

Default Congrads Sean Great Review

Once again MO has the videos, pictures and writing that sets it apart from the rest. Would like here some impressions on riders who are about 6'0 and 200 lbs if you could.

Default What happened to the mighty V-Twin RC51?

RememberKPaul the Great Motorcycle Prophet predicted the demise of the V-Twin in racing. Time to recognize my greatness.

Saweeet!



Is it just me or is this bike prettier (and smaller) looking in real life than in any of the stock shots we have seen thus far? I really thought Honda had a fugly misshapen bike on their hands until I saw some of the beauty shots of the silver one. I even like the seperate flat black of the lower fairing.



MO you have done it again.

I find it interesting that KPaul proclaims his allegiance for “equal” displacement engine configurations (in-lines vs. v-twins) but in the race of life wants “Kerry (in)equity”. Does this mean that “he” can’t really compete against the rest of us??? Just wondering why you would have opposing standards???? And this is defined as “greatness”???
