Jap inc. suck? More of "bike makers suck"...
KTM press tomorrow? Where is that 690 Adventure? If it is not there - I'll say they all suck.

Ah, and - where is that Ducati Strada Aperture or what's it called? Ducati revealed streetfighter, 1198 and new monster. Predictably. They are not Jap inc. thou..

Perhaps it's just bad year... or good? I do not need to spend money?

Looks like a rational response to the F800GS. I like it.

Nothing interesting from Honda either. Still it was an exceptionally good year last year (Tenere, F800GS, new Transalp etc...), so maybe we were expecting too much this time.
