The new bimmer is great news, if only we had a comparable american bike. The new suspension up front looks pretty trick.

If it's moving into "Japan's turf", it will be in the high rent district. My bet is you could buy and FJR AND Hayabusa for very close to the same price. It looks like a nice enough bike, but I bet a few large over 20 is going to be the going rate.

Default I'm glad somebody has fresh ideas.

Sehr kool. While Triumph and BMW are on the cutting edge with new concepts, the Japanese makers are intruducing ... more cruisers.

While it looks like one heck of a bike it's price will likely keep its sales down in MV Agusta numbers. No real threat to the Big4.

You don't think the V2k was cutting edge? what's wrong with you.

If I were rich and lived somewhere without speed limits, this would be it! No doubt.



Unfortunately, neither of those things describes me. Hell, I don't even own a bike as of 2 days ago. Why am I here? Arrrgh. I love motorcycles, I cannot be without!!!

Ninja 250. Cheap to own, cheap to insure, great on gas, not fast enough for accelerative thrills, but fun in the twisties. Besides, it's better than not having a bike.

Default Boring Metal Winner (BMW)

Well, BMW manages to do it again with another overpriced, gimmicky, piece of eyesore appeal. Past award winner was the R 1200 CL.

I really like the Italian-esque rear but they kind of blew it with the fat front. The goofy paint schemes just accentuate this.



Perhaps a solid color would help. With some bags on it, I'm likin' it.



How do you say armchaps in German?
