    Mr Duke, sir, you look like you need some sleep.
    But you are doing a fine job and you seem like you
    are having a good time.

    • Old MOron

      Yeah, he’s losing sleep because he can’t stop worrying.
      In has absence, the MOrons are posting inflammatory editorials, spending all sorts of video capital on end-of-the-year moto shootouts. And who knows what else is going on!
      Ha, I think it’s great.

      Unfortunately, I didn’t have the budget to bring my hair and make-up staff to Italy….

    I’m happy to FINALLY see some Japanese Superbikes being updated. What do you think is the nicest new model for 2015, Kevin ? …and it doesn’t have to be Japanese.

    • Kevin Duke

      Nicest? Difficult to answer! This RC certainly qualifies, but if it does cost more than $70k, it’s more of a dream machine than anything. I’m very excited about the performance potential of the new R1 and Duc 1299, too, and Aprilia’s RSV4 revisions are significant but got overshadowed. But it’s the H2 I’m most excited for, as a supercharged literbike can’t be anything but awesome

        +1 on that Kevin. Spoke to my Kawasaki Dealer today and the buy in for the H2 is a $2,500 deposit to place the order. So, I cannot wait to hear your report. :)
