SF Moto Show part 2

As I was saying...the Yamaha has the feel of a bike that's been thoroughly worked over and improved upon. As for other bikes at the show: the Gixxer 1000 remains the same, which to me means it feels long and wide at the tank. Graphics are tired, fit and finish not up to par with Yamaha&Honda. Kawasaki-nothing new re: sportbikes. The ZX 9 is another long and wide bike IMHO. Other Hondas: the new Interceptor is beautiful, especially the rear. The build quality was highest among japbikes. The 919 could be fun if they gave it more of a hooligan edge. The Ducati Bostrum replica was pure eye candy (and eurotwins do little for me). All in all, a good moto show...
