I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but it appears MCN got their wires crossed (big surprise) on the R6. It looks like their rendition was based on the R6S (notice the similar front fairing and overall shape) and not the new R6. So that would explain how they were soooo far off. They were watching the wrong bike!



And perhaps Yamaha created a very effective diversion with the 6S.

That new FZ-1 looks like an answer to Gabe's rant. But, more in line with my own interests, what's up with the "unified" brakes on the FJR? Are we talking linked brakes here? eeewww. Just 'cause BMW and Honda think it's a good idea on their sport tourers (and you'll notice BMW has removed the back-to-front linking on their new models) doesn't mean we all want 'em that way! Remember, the FJR is the "supersport-tourer".

Work? Is that what you call holding a Corona Extra in one hand while you polish the spinners on your Jaguar?
