Too late Suzuki. It would appear that actor (lol) David Hasselhof aready owns the proprietary rights to the name Smash, as that apparently is the name of his 2003 Harley Davidson. VWW

All time worst name--send your mind back to 1983, if it will go that far. A simple vertical twin from Suzuki (the company that also brought you the name "Madura")--



the Tempter.

Actually I think V-Rod is kinda lame, or Radian, sounds like the bad guy's on star trek, then you have your Munch, thats what it does to Trabants that get in the way. As for cool names you got your Ossa Plonker, or Hodaka super rat (my first bike), or a Combat Wombat, the list goes on, but my all-time favorite coolest motorcycle name of all is the Bultaco Pursang, it even sounds fast. I'll can carry that one step further and say the blue and white '75 Pursang, '78 gray HD Low-Rider, '69 burgundy and white Bonneville, and the '03 flat gray Moto-Guzzi Scura are to me pure art. There's lots more but those four to me represent all that is good and pure in the world (sniff)
