I like the original better. This one looks like a VMAX that was left under the hot sun too long, and melted.

Of course I like Cushmans too, so what do I know?

Wait, so Suzuki d!cked around with that model for, what, three years, lost all PR momentum, released the bike after the interest wore off and are now giving up on it after one year? Wow, talk about dropping the ball.

Not necessarily, The whole naked thing originated in Europe and resides their.
Bringing it to the U.S market was probly more of a test to see if it would take off here,.....

Yes, Tully Bascom and the Grande Duchy of Fenwick...excellent movie. I'm a big fan of Peter Sellers, the man was a comedic genius.

Correctamundo. David Edwards points out in this month's CW that there is a very cool CB1000R for 09 in Europe; basially a naked CBR1000RR. It's got handlebars and pegs that make it usable for something other than the track, most of the power and all the handling. And we'll never see it here. The US just does not like "Standards" or "naked" bikes. Cruisers, Supersports, the occasional Dual Sport....that's about it.
