Congrats on the new bike. This one is not in my near future, but it is what I want today.
Oh wait, that's mine, here's how it sits presently, albeit with a temporary bracket which had not been installed at the time of this photo:
Sometimes, you don't dream about a bike. You just make it happen. This was my starting point a year ago:
NICE pic, and congrats on the new ride! She looks fantastic
I rode that last week (the bike ). I was hoping it wasn't perceptively better than my "old" V7 Classic. I was wrong. They've made a great bike even better!
You ARE aware that you are NOT helping me posting stuff like that, right?
Did it feel faster too?
Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200
today the bike i want is the one i own (2010 bonneville mag wheel)....just bored out to 1200ccs!
While the butt dyno can't detect the difference in power, it certainly seems to have a lot more torque in the 3,500-4,000 RPM range. There were some hills where I was going 50ish in 4th gear at around 3,500 RPM or so where I would have wanted to down shift on my V7C, where it wasn't necessary on the new model. The new model is very happy on level ground at 3,800 RPM and higher in top gear, where the old model wants to be at 4,300 or better to be in top gear on level ground.
There are some other changes as well. The first thing I noticed, is that, as others have mentioned, that the high-idle lever ("choke") is gone, and the computer does that for you. The next thing was that it has a deeper, throaty sound compared to the old model -- I like it..... A LOT. I don't know if the exhaust has been changed, or if it is the new intake, but I really like the sound.
So, while, I already knew I wanted the cast wheels, steel fuel tank, and significantly larger fuel capacity and better range, I didn't really expect it to ride any differently than the old model. I was VERY pleasantly surprised. They made an already great bike even better.
Hmmmm... my HB racks, center stand, and windscreen will all bolt right up. Now, if they'd just offer the red and white two tone paint on the Stone.
Because of its fuel efficiency and because I like it
No offence, but Honda's offerings on two and four wheels over the last several years threaten the pharmaceutical industry for sleep inducement.
sadly, i must agree. they may as well paint their bikes beige while they're at it.
Love the soft flowing graceful lines. A true classic.
The bike's nice to!
Can I want the same bike again, today?
Same thing as I wanted yesterday (and a couple weeks ago when I posted here)...DRZ250S
Damn Suzuki for the 2013 DR200....DAMN SUZUKI!
I would like a Triumph Turbo Rocket3, today
Two-wheeled tire shredder.
What you really meant was supercharged. What kind of power and torque numbers does this beast have?
