2006 Wish List

So what bikes you hope/expect to be announced for the 2006 model year? The rumor mills should be working overtime shortly as a lot of stuff gets announced in late summer. My hopes (all wild speculation/wet dreams except for the Triumph):

Triumph 675/680 triple sportbike - top of my wish list and rumors from England are that it's almost ready to go.

Suzuki SV650R - an SV650S with GSXR suspension, wheels and brakes. Plus the (currently optional) lower fairings. Track/twisty guys would eat this up.

Yamaha FZ-1 - freshen up the old girl with some new styling, suspension and a motor based on the current R1.

Honda XR650 supermotard - an electric starting street legal supermotard based on the XR650R (not the really old "L")

V2 450 and or 550 Sportbike to replace the 250 2-stroker. MMMMMmmmmmm.
Pictures have been posted of this one. it is a sweet looking 350lb bike.


There have also been rumors of an inline 4.

but could be as late as 2008 and as early as next yr.
