Erion_9twees, just calm down man its just for fun. Obviously its all about performance first. My goal wasn't to stir up shit storm here, just some converstion. Obviously we are all free to buy and like whatever bikes we would like. However, personally I would like to seem some different styling on the new Honda, but that is just me.
As far as your coments....."why dont you buy a bike based on the performance and the way it rides".
Personally I'm starting to get sick of everyone pretending to be the next Nicky Haden. Lets be realistic here, how many of us are really out dragging our knees with liter bikes to the wood. I would be willing to bet that 97% of the sportbikes sold are cruising up and down mainstreets accross the U.S, not running the tires off of in the twisties.
Now i'm sure you'll come back and tell me about how your a pro-rider or the next star-boy doing wheelies from la to ny, but really does it matter. Last time I checked it still was all about getting outside and having some fun.
Lets just calm down and take this for what it is worth, just a place to bs about bikes when we cant ride.
