Default Right seruzawa?

Yep I agree.. It's incredible how the price stays pretty low for these things. Now if Harley was making it they would be 30K right seruzawa? Compare the price of a V-Rod with that of a Yamaha Warrior.. or Kawasaki Mean Streak

I am a sportbike fan, but I'm just not interested in any of these bikes



WHere is their $40k Rossi GP replica! A production version of the two-wheel drive bike they used at Paris Dakar? How about a competitor to Suzuki's SV, Kawi's Ninja 650, etc..? How about a Supermoto?



Don't make assumptions about me--you don't even KNOW ME sucka!

There go my plans to buy a new R1.



The styling is almost completely unchanged, and considering that I'd seen a concept illustration which is 10000 times cooler than this snoozejob, I'm very very let down.



That's not to even start on the whole 4 valve BS... God I need a beer.

Looks like the venerable YZF600R survives for yet another year! The "poor man's VFR."

well there is the $65k ducati GP replica... if you want a real fun bike though try a TZ250



2-wheel drive would be sweet to see in a production bike though!

Default Re: Think I found my new Black Thunder

"The R1 still is the best looking liter bike. Classy lines no funky racer boy cheap looking graphics like Suzuki...You think Yamaha has an Italian on the payroll? Cause the R1 is sweet. "



I agree with kpaul.



[gaaack! THUD!]

Come on, stranger things can happen. Like the Russian guy claiming an asteroid is going to strike the Earth this month. Or how-a-bout me needing a 170+hp bike for the street.(or the track for that matter)
