Remaining Big-4 new sportbikes revealed for 2006



GSXR600/750:

Kawasaki ZX-14R:

I like the side exhaust on gixxers, but other than that as for all 3 bikes, I just don't get it. Their predecessors starting to look better aesthetically. gixxers look just like the K5 1000. and the sexy ZX-12R just turned into a hippo.

I agree with the GSX-R... I love the exhaust... but that's about it.

As for the 14 - well, I like the size-look it has going. It REALLY looks like a 14, and for something that shouldn't be a race rep (what would it be replicating?) that's a good thing in my book.

the more I look at the new yamaha's and suzuki's the more dissapointed I am at honda for their 2006 models. I might be jumping ship soon!

It makes you wonder, within the current packaging parameters, if there just isn't much new ground to break, without becoming REALLY radical (e.g., ZX-14).

For as much as I hated it it at first, even the Ducati 999 is starting to look passe', with some of the new styling trends.

Makes one wonder if the used-bike market is about to really flourish.
