Just had a view of this...


Pretty tempting review. Anyone thrown a leg over one or have thoughts on it in relation to other current litre bikes?

One comment in the vid that has been made which gives pause, is the seat.

Fortunately, Rich's Custom Seats still seems to be in business. They have moved a few years back to a penninsula across from the Seattle area. Looks like there is a ferry from Edmonds that will take you close the shop in the town of Kingston.

MCN's Micheal Neeves gives an,,,,,,interesting perspective on the new CBR.

Rich's Custom Seats actually has a B&B at his place, to do an overnight with custom fitting seat.

Yes, shortly after I posted, I thought, "Oh better check the price on that baby!" It is soo bloody tempting though. Probably, the last time I will buy a superbike before they put me in the infirmary with a drool bucket, so might as well go out big. However, I will have to get off my Covid butt and scare up some extra freelance work which I am already working on.

And, thanks Steve for the tip on Rich's B&B. Think the last time I was there was around 2005. I will have to watch that video you posted.

Good video Steve. Not sure what to think at this point. I self-admittedly have a bad attitude about the legacy of certain brands and the cost of servicing. I may be proven otherwise over time. It is certainly worth watching this video if you are thinking about getting a new litre bike but it creates more questions than solid answers, at least tot me.

There certainly isn't a lack of decent choice.

Incredible choice. And no denying Honda build quality, I have 5 Honda’s. It does seem as though they have tuned the new engine where the power it way at the top, which for me would be a pain in the ass.
