Which of the new 2006 sport bikes??

Well the only one that has caught my eye and impressed me is the Yamaha R6, of the liter bikes, I'm waiting to see the new ZX-10R stats and I guess that one is the closest to impress of the big ones (the exhausts can be changed and 90% of you will anyway regardless), I love both of them in black best. After seeing the new Honda's, what a dissappointment with them, what happened to all the talk about a V5 VFR? or a more updated CBR 1000RR? Yamaha is pulling up in the ranks with me and maybe #1 in the 600cc division with me now.

I'm guessing Yamaha will have a seriously re-worked R1 in '07. The '06 R1 got a "refreshing" similar to what the R6 got this year. Gotta love the LE version especially with all the mods. However, you could probably do the same for less to a "regular" R1.

Where did you hear the stats on the new R6, haven't seen any HP ratings or weight stated.

No doubt! $40K and no radial mount calipers though? Weird... still the hottest bike ever though!

MV's are in a league of the their own, up with Ducati. I see Ducati's as the Ferrari of motorcycles and MV as Lamborghini. These aren't real world bikes, come on 40,000 euros for the top MV (oh and it comes with a nice suede seat) but how many do you see and who really buys these? I live in Europe so I see more of both than most in the U.S., but still they aren't bike that you race around the street with, how many of you are millionairs who have an MV in the 4 car garage next to your Bugatti and SLR McLaren (oh and your Kia)?

I agree that MV and Ducati are the exotics of motorcycles...so I'll dream about it as I do exotic cars.....

BTW...there will only be 300 MV-F4-1000-Tamburini 's made....talk about limited edition.....wow

The 1000RR has more compression now. Up from 11.9 its now 12.2. Should give it a little more umph.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.
