Tested one a year ago and absolutely loved it.

The four into one exhaust is a work of art!



Or, how 'bout this version:





I like the CB1300 Bol D'or too (I'm sure this probably won't come to the US either):

Naked version of the CB1300:

CB400 Super Four

I would so love for Honda to bring this CB400 Super Four to the US (but they won't):

I think I like the naked version even better:

But with the 1290 cc engine that's going in the Superduke for 2013.

Still the Victory Judge after trying one at the Demo truck yesterday. Good runner, good handling, lots of fun. Much better looking in person.

+1 for the CB400, I'd love to have that one, naked please.


The CB1300 is available here in both version, and none were sold in
the last 3 years, as far as I'm aware (4,5 mil. people country).

People tend to go ZX14 route for that money

I, for one, don't need the power of the CB1300. Too bad the CB400 weighs (427, dry) almost the same as as most 600 cc bikes. Makes me wonder if it is just a 600 sleeved down for countries with tiered licensing. If that is the case, then, as nice as it is, I'm not as sure a I want it.

A 400cc four should weigh no more than 400 lbs WET (in other words, more like 370 lbs dry).

Not even going to lie, I want a 2012 R1 in red and white.

I test rode one the other day, and other than the shitty setup they had on the thing (levers needed to be rotated down, too much slop in the throttle, brake and shift lever at wrong angle, etc.), I felt immediately at home on it. And it probably had the best set of brakes I've used in recent memory. That crossplane engine sounded glorious out of the stock exhaust, which is a bonus. Even if you hate sport bikes, everyone owes it to themselves to give one a quick spin at some point in your motorcycling career. A quick burst of wide open throttle on a 170+ hp motorcycle is like a refresh button for the soul.

I want to have at least one proper superbike in the stable at some point.

Well, I went down to the HD orlando store, and not only was the experience much better then any other one I had been to, it really got me thinking, because I'm down to about a month before purchasing something, and the sales lady made it obvious she wouldn't put up with hemming and hawing over a decision, though she would help with eliminating certain things.

I thought I had eliminated the V-Rod. I went there today specifically for that purpose, but they just so happened to have a tenth aniversary edition sitting there in the window, and I couldn't help but sit on it. Now I'm in a bind, because just from sitting on it I can't eliminate it. What's worse, is that the Heritage classic turned out to be not as comfortable as I thought it would be.


So I've got a V-Rod on my mind

Followed closely by the 2000-2006 ZX-12R:



EDIT: I'd also like to add a third, a complete contradiction to the above:



Yes, that's a Road King; yes, it vibrates; but the bike still calls to me for some reason I can't explain.
It calls you because it's amazing awesome incredible and I love it!

I'm my opinion that motorcycle houses the finest liquid cooled v twin motor ever :)

Just my opinion....no need to beat on me.
