DAMMIT! He asked me!


But yeah, what you said.

The only problem with the VTR250 locally is that it costs almost as much
as a Kawasaki ER6n.

[QUOTE=Rasthomas;17471457]I think it was a case of your negativity more than anything. Let the guy enjoy his dreams. After all, this thread shows bikes people wish they could have.[/QUOT

So ya didn't see where I thought it was Kool? I'm a triumph guy from the old days (bought my first new one in '69) and really want to like the new classics. But they are just not much of a motorcycle to actually ride in today's world. Even though they are way better built, they are heavier than the original by 100lbs, not much more powerful and handle no better. No matter how kool they look I just can't bring myself to get one. But I sure don't have anything against anyone that likes/enjoys theirs!!

this, a little RC4 based on the 690 duke :



more pictures at : http://www.mototech.de/index.php?mac...nid=56&page=56

If I read correctly the kit to transform your Duke to this is about 4800 euros. details in German :

Das RC4 Kit enthält IMM Carbon Verkleidung incl. Ram-Airsystem, Tank im Rahmenheck, Fußrastenanlage, Lenker, sowie als Option den Umbau des kompletten Fahrwerks. Das gesamte Kit, kann so montiert werden, ohne ein Orginalteil zu bearbeiten.

translated:

The RC4 kit includes IMM carbon fiber bodywork including ram-air system, fuel tank mounted on the tail section, rear sets, clip ons. Also available, optionally, are complete chassis conversion (suspension). The entire kit can be mounted without modifying the original parts.

it's a one-off build. not my type of bike at all. whoever pays that price for what that bike is, is a fool with too much money.

old, british, and very rare. nobody's gonna be able to help you work on it, and parts that aren't custom built will be harder to find than an honest politician. nevermind i am complete shit with carburetors. i dislike carbs nearly as much as i dislike two-smoke engines.

i agree, 16.5k for a bonnie is frakkin' nuts. hence why i have a base bonnie and i'm riding the nuts off of it :-)

i absolutely despise "special edition" bikes, like the steve mcqueen edition of the bonnie they just put out. it's retarded. they change the paint, change out the headlight and seat with other stock components, and call it custom? more like parts-bin custom. then they overcharge you. no thanks. i just can't justify the price hike at all, unless it's that stupid, vain, exclusivity thing. some people. oh dear.

If you can't afford to ride it, you don't deserve to own it!

Following the Rockster theme, a bike so homely that I think it is kinda cute.
