It's an Aprilla CRT Moto GP bike.
I'll need lights and turn signals then I can wow the guys at the river on Thursday night.

I think Honda should just go ahead and rename that bike the FB6 since NO ONE gets it right. Not that it bugs me or anything...

I would go with the one that has the footpegs in the correct position (below seat). 70mpg would be great, but I think for less $ I would go with the 15 more HP, 2500 more rpm, and 1 more front disc that is offered on the Versys.

You picked the wrong one.



Someday soon, before I go all old-man-guzzi, I'm going to own one of Triumph's 675 triples.

Here's my short list.

Guzzi V7 Stone
KTM690
Triumph Thruxton or Speedmaster
CB1100
EX300

It's really hard for me to pick. I have a 919 now and it's so perfect that any bike I choose will be lacking in some area. There's no clear upgrade.

But it does sort of lack character and it's not a twin. My perfect bike has to be a single or a twin.

The Triumph "Street Tracker" thread is very interesting too.

Naah, I like the 675 but I'd pick the least track oriented 600 if I was in
the market for one. That used to be the CBR or GSXR, probably is the
new 636 now.

The 675 costs more here then the GSX-R 750, and almost as much as some 1000cc bikes.
That won't fly.

I figure the whole point of a 600 SS is getting a track oriented one.

I have the impression you and I could sit around over a couple dozen beers, and not agree on one single thing. It'd be fun though.

This morning, as six inches of snow falls on my fair city, I want one of these:

I'll never ride on a track, but I would appreciate top of the line (or close)
brakes and suspension, just would like it moderately comfortable around
town and for light touring.

There's supposedly a huge difference in comfort between some of the
600's.

I've ridden only 2004 636 - that's no good.
Tried a 2008 or so CBR1k (blade) - that's even worse.

But people keep telling me that 2006-08 CBR600 is very nice, and
most say that GSXRs are the most comfortable for normal riding
(any of them).

Check out a Street Triple. Might be just what you're looking for.
