    verrrrry cool bike, especially in the retro/anniversary colors. I really like this one with the added belly pan and nose fairing, like a modern throw back to the RZ350s, albeit no where near as cool as the old 2T RZs, but still pretty neat



    Ive also been digging the XJR 1300s when done up, def that 80s jap muscle bike style



    Again, I love my Repsol, and Honda in general, they are a close 2nd in bikes and cars to me to BMW/Yamaha, but I am king fan boy when it comes to Yamaha ;D

      My friend just got one!
      I think Downz said it best, just as my friend did (who had a 2016 R6 previously), they are pretty much comfortable R6/R1's.

        Awesome.

        My dream. I am looking at either a G650gs or a Rally RAID converted Honda cb500x.

        Are you going to grab a new crf1000l Africa Twin?

        The 1988 is now restored. Will do the same with the 1996 this winter. Both bikes took me thru amazing roadtrips thru Europe, North Africa and the Balkans.

          Wow, that XSR is awesome, looks like it is twin 700 which I think only Europe got, not the 900 3-cylinder. These are basically one of the very few new bikes I would buy, I would actually prefer a 700 3-cylinder, I like smaller, higher revving engines.

          I am currently obsessed with 1984-1986 Honda Nighthawk CB700SCs. I have three now, one runner, one project, and one parts bike I am using to test a rebuilt engine I just replaced the starter chain in.

          not mine, for reference...

            I dont even know why Im drawn to it, as it really is an odd looking bike, but they just look so tough!

                Loved it. I toured the US with it in 1987. Then got a Hurricane 1000, which was kinda commercial flop for Honda. They had a warehouse full of them for years. Then bought a first year (1990 ?) Honda CBR1000F. With Captain America livery.





                Brake harder. Go faster. No shit.

                  They really are cool, great balance of power, handling, brakes, riding position, etc. I am not sure why Honda currently doesn't offer something similar. Their CB1100 is big and conservative, others in the sport range are either have full plastics or are 300-500 twins kinda aimed at the lower or entry market.

                  I would like to see more inline 4 cylinders in the 600 to 750 range, basically a modern Nighthawk. The SV650 and FZ6 seemed popular enough based on the market and magazine reviews so...?

                  I would even be really interested in the Asian market CB400F, high revving 400cc inline 4 for Japan and AUS.

                  or this with a less ugly front fairing...

                    I wish the big four could make something along the lines of this.

                      On/off topic, went riding all weekend and went to supercross, tons of fun, sadly the WR is not too happy, fork seals gave out on one of the shocks, and its pissing fuel, float doesnt appear to be sticking, so gotta tear it apart again :(. Oh well, such as life

                            The best bike I've ever owned. Great Sport Tourer. Could ride all day long and still feel fresh at the end.

                              Looks pretty mean IMO. The tank looks really oversized, but for some reason I really like it.
                              I know I couldn't build one this nice, but I'd like to head in this direction.

                                Anyone here ride a v-rod? Wish there was a better way to package that engine because its a blast, beside the gear ratio.
