We outta take the Great Prophylactic to Vegas. We would just bet against any team he picks.



During the commercials we could beat on him for excersize.

It's kind of usual to attach the expression "pulls from any revs" to big twins, but this four-cylinder mill could teach some big twins the meaning of "low-down pull".



Yah you betcha!!



WOW. This bike is cherry!! It should be painted red - get my joke. I'm trading my Triumph TR6 Tiger in for this beauty.!!



I have a question though. Where is the kickstart lever? Did it fall off. No biggee really, I'm used to that!

You'll notice that only one of KitchenPatrol's picks has a record equal to the Bears this season. The Bengals have dropped two already.

Honda is hoping to turn a nifty little profit by selling bike covers for that monstrosity. If I owned one, I'd buy two covers for it in case one blows off!! Pity that you can't keep the cover on while riding though....

WOW!



this sounds like just the sort of bike I want!





1. big zoot right off idle so that big throttle rotations and/or manic revs are not needed to move quickly





2. the above must be accompanied by completely vibration free silkiness.





3. upright ergos, low pegs, wide tall bars





4. aeros that create total serenity upto atleast 75mph.





5. bulk (lack of) that makes for easy effortless urban use.





6. Decent twisty road ability. I am not a road racer, but I like to enjoy back roads. so more than a road racer, I need a bike that is responsive but approachable and forgiving





and I want a smooth ride with good isolation from expansion strips, sharp edge disturbances.





This bike seems to come closest to all that.





too bad its not coming to the US.

Why on earth so many people wish it would not be imported to U.S.? A 1000 cc I-4 sensible shoes standard, its not like a crowded niche. People seem to think if it is not for them it should not be imported. Less selection is better.

I won the confidence pool this week and it already paid my whole year in the pool, so I'll give him the beating, and you can take the cash. We'll go have drinks afterward.

I disagree (not that´s any of my business what you import over there).



How about a bike that has a proven bomb-proof engine with 170 hp and then downtuned to under 100, how bomb-proof it would be then? Try "very". I can easily imagine somebody would find that an attractive feature. Not to mention the apparent outstanding rideability.



As for power, it does not fulfill my aspirations either. But then, lets remember I should put stage II to my fat boy to have a chance with this "incredibly bland" bike.

Default Re: The 1000RR engine: Euro 3

I totally agree with you. I can´t see what everyone is whining about. If somebody wants a superbike, there are plenty of them. But how about a standard, basic model with a super torquey 1000CC I-4. And a super durable too, this engine was originally designed to handle 170 hp.

I guess they could bring em over and let em sit on the sales floor like it's going to. I guess if they discount it enough and they get old enough SOMEBODY would buy one. I just can't fathom who that somebody would be. Standards don't sell well here. Especially ones that have dated styling and power at the lower end of the spectrum.
