Default Deauville

Guess I should have mentioned it.... It's the Honda Deauville, a Europe only soft tourer with integral bags, quite popular in France/Germany. It used to have a 650 version of Honda's small V-twin water cooled mills, it's has grown for 2006 to 680cc and received a major redesign.

WOW the Aprillia SXV/RXV looks beautiful, a street legal version of the SXV would have my money for my city bike fighting traffic in Toronto.

Default GSR600 COMING HERE?

Anyone with more info on the GSR600? I like the looks and the low seat height would be a big plus

What! Not a single mention of a completely new motorcycle shown in one of your pictures (31)! Is this motojournalism? I have to assume that it's a BMW shaft drive something but who knows since you didn't say a word about it.

I'm with you. I don't see why if Suzuki offers the SV in both naked and "S" models why Kawi can't do the same. I do like the Ninja 650 having seen it in person up at Biketoberfest...but would love to pick up one of those cool-lookin' naked bikes...

Based on comments seen in "Bike" et. al. for years, I suppose the Deauville revamp (pic 31) is waaay overdue. Didn't it have the old NT650 mill? Looks like the child of the ST13.



Guess Ducati had not shown its new stuff at Paris. Hopefully MO will have Youseff at the Milan show with write up coming a bit quicker.



Obligatory curmudgonly grumble: where is Honda Varadero - in a general sense?? Is Honda too busy building -er - really plain looking cars and tweaking unrequested VTec systems to bother bringing this to the US? Inquiring minds want to know.



At least they don't employ Bangle or Robb!
