I thought it was a pretty good artical myself, well balanced and informative with good pictures and videos, listening to the Speed 4 screaming on the dyno was worth the subscribtion cost alone.

Maybe some helmet cam. footage would be cool, but over all I thought it was a good write-up. What do you think was lacking?

As an owner of a 1990 CB-1, I am actually disappointed that the 599 doesn't look more like it. The CB-1 has a steel perimeter frame which looks very nice, instead of a concealed backbone.

He's double p1ssed that the Sporty didn't throw a rod or leave a cylinderhead in the bushes.

how many people who have paid to read this would actually buy one of these wallowing pigs.



I doubt there are many bikes that aren't fully plasticked that can beat this lineup.



if you took the best parts of these bikes and combined them, you would probably still not get to the sv's level.



Lol! One of the bikes (guess which) has the same motor, only with five ponies tuned out of it, and if it's not the same frame, it's very similar. Three of the bikes in this test have signifigantly more horsepower. Also, the SV's stock suspension is known to be a little on the cheap side.



I think if you picked the best stuff out of these bikes to put together, you'd have a better bike than the SV, regardless of what you think is "best." It would probably just cost a lot more.

What's this censoring thing? I've seen posts get moderated, and I've seen words get bleeped, but I don't think a post has been removed while I've been around.

$$$ / Horsepower:

Last year's ZX6R = $82.11 per hp

Honda 599 = $82.16 per hp



Yep, yep, that's an unhappy dude.

He gets around so much, I wouldn't be that surprised to find out EBass was with my mom!
