    Only if you're loping around at 1/8th throttle, which is not why liter bikes were created. :ricky

    FYI: got 43mpg on the last tank on the FZ6. Keep the needle above 7k and let it fly.... :clap

    I'd love a ZRX1400R. USD forks, analog clocks, with that bitchin' black paint job on the Jap 1200 DAEG.

    I know it doesn't exist, but a guy can dream...

    I'd also like any or all of the following existing bikes:

    Beemer GS 1200 Water boxer

    KTM 990 SM

    KTM 350 Freeride

    How about Moto Guzzi Norge 2012? After checking out all sporting type touring bikes, I decided on the MG:D

    Thanks for the tip! I've been using the Guzzi site looking for dealers, but it doesn't tell the whole story.

    That's a KOOL looking! Too bad it's still a heavy underpowered pig...

    No problem, I own many heavy underpowered pigs, as long as they look cool. This thread is called which bike do you want today, not which bike meets old hippie's approval.

    Have you seen the video's out there for these hammerhead Jackpine's? They don't look "underpowered". Ok so maybe it's not a 200hp Desmo but considering what most people would do with a bike like this i think it looks quite capable.
