Even more tempting (ignoring the cost) is the Benelli Tre also featured in MCN. Sorry, I'm not smart enough to figure out how to provide a link.

All that does sound great but I think I will still get a RC or 929. What can I say, I have Honda blood running through me.

Yamaha better get their asses back to the drawing board quick. Those 150 improvements on the '00 R1 were not nearly enough; one year later, the R1 will be outdated and antiquated, leaving it's owners in a sense of dispair. That Gixxer is gonna spank the living crap outta the R1, you can bet on it.

P.S. I'm only kidding around with the R1 guys, but I am glad to see the new Gixxer coming to fruition.

Not to dis' all the brand loyal folks out there, but that statement hits the nail on the head for me. I like Hondas for reasons everyone knows and agrees with, but that won't stop me from buying something else (and that's not "something else" as in winning the lottery and buying a 310lb, 400hp, salmon-colored MV Agusta Custom; just about most of us would do that...well, maybe in a different color).

Tristan,

I don't hate all bikes but Honda. But bikes in the same class perform almost the same. There lap times are almost identical (under 1/2 second between some). They have even run a 600 in the 750 class and won.

All you have to do is pick the color and riding position you like. You can't go wrong with any bike out today. And I find that Honda has what I like in a bike.

So brand loyalty boring, I don't think so.

Dan F4, when that new GSXR600 comes out, you'll be singing a different tune. JUST KIDDING! I agree, it is so easy today to stay with one brand because they are all so good.

Pete,

If the new Gixxer 600 is that good I might just have to jump ship. I'm all for something faster and better. But I want it to be comfy on the tush too, know what I mean.

But I will go with a big bore for my next bike.
