Let me get this straight. Honda can't win a supersport race but it gets picked to build the spec 600cc engines? LOL! I'd like to check some off shore accounts.

It may not win Seru, but 'It's a Honda!' I wonder how long they are going to milk that one.

Zemke won the FX series last year. In WSS didn't a Ten Kate bike win the championship? Honda has great 600 motors. They need more aggressive riders on the Erion bikes right now. As far as WSS Honda and Ten Kate aren't they right up there in points? Here's the real question. Do they just rip-off the CBR motor or do they sleeve a 800 gp motor? Seems like the V4 would lend to a narrower bike. Those little jockeys that ride the current crop of 250s won't fit on a traditional 600 inline bike nearly as well.

"Zemke won the FX series last year."

Wasn't the nickname of that series the 'Honda Cup'? They didn't do so hot over the last bunch of years in Supersport, so the AMA threw them a bone with the FX series, which turned out to be a bad joke.
