Ok maybe I missed the discussion on this thing already but I just picked up a copy out here of a mag that had the new 06 bikes in it. I have to say being a R6 fan I was delighted to see the new one. It is absolutely sweet, way sicker than the R1 and I dig the speedo colors etc. Although I head that yammy is coming out with a limited edition R1 with all the high end goodies on it, ohlins suspension, alloy whels etc. What do you guys think who has the sickest new bike of 06 regardless of displacement? I reallydig the new triumph triple as well very nice lines.

i came from an r6 99'. loved my r6 and think they new one i sweet with the new muffler. i had hoped that kawi was going to go that way with mounting the muffler for the 06' 10r but you all know how that story came to be.

I gotta admit that new R6 is a beauty. And the new Triumph 675 although looking like a total 600RR rip off is nice to look at and narrow.

the only think I don't like about the new R6 is the fly by wire throttle. Especially for the track when you need perfect response time with the throttle. It may work but I think I will wait and see until it is tested and proves to work. For the street however, it would be sweet.

I'd have to agree with Andy, the new R6 and the Triumph may be the best looking bikes out there...I wouldn't buy either, but they are bad ass!
