Default now that's what I call value!

You can get detailed news like that every week for just L211.00 ($343.93) per year.



Afraid I have to be content with MO for $12.

Oh, yeah. Hats off to MR. ALLCAPS for pegging this one. 600s languish on the showroom floor while the real men fly out on real man machines. When 160 mph just isn't enough. Really.

Default Ducati Parking

That story is well worth checking out. Guess it is not only squids on 600 Jap sportbikes who end up with more bike than they can handle!



I'd like to learn the rest of this story

Maybe KPaul can research it (there is probably some VTwin vs inline 4 angle in there somewhere).

>>636 engine alone would not be enough to put the ZX on top. The kawasaki chassis would have to do its bit<<



I might have thought that the USD fork, radial brakes and (on the 600cc version) slipper clutch and adjustable swingarm might have helped as well. Of course, since we can't get the actual text of the article without forking out $350 to subscribe to the print rag, we have no idea what led MCN to that conclusion.



Quite frankly, as JohnnyB stated in the recent Honda writeup, they are all so much better than 99.9% of us will ever be able to use, that the choice really comes down to brand preference, aesthetic preference or the local dealer.

Default V-Twin low end torque to blame.

If this guy would of been on a inline 4 it never would of happened. That low end torque will get you every time

Default That was the greatest post ever....

It was.



Or at least, it was the greatest post I've read today.



Someone give that boy a cookie or something. Or at least set it by the jar holding his brain.
