    The V85TT pictures don't do it justice either. This thing will look better in the flesh I'm saying.

    CX500????
    I'm not seeing it, at all.....not even remotely. OBA10-HondaCX500-10.jpg

    Edit, there's an older Guzzi that lives around me close by somewhere, he [ or she ] wails on past every now and then like thunder, what a sensational sounding motorcycle....1000cc BMW twin, wet fart, Guzzi like a V8 Supercar.

    Good on 'em for getting off their arses and designing something to bring it into the 21st century. Costly exercise and well overdue!

    Would I want one? Nah. But I hope they do well and then they will continue to develop

    Took Piaggio to do it. Or maybe to pay for it.

    But, they did point out that it was a game changer.

    There's a bunch of editorial fails attached to this article:
    1. Whatever happened to investigative journalism? Or at least informed speculation? (Hint: interview anyone who might have feasible insight into what, why & how?)
    2. Why was this say-nothing article even allowed to be published? Everything in it could have gone into a deep caption, or a Briefing note.
    3. Being first doesn't excuse being sloppy. Never mind the sub-editor - why didn't the writer self-edit?
    4. Even if the writer's paid to submit a given number of words a day/week, there's no excuse for them being rubbish. I've been obliged to reduce Cathcart's articles for over 30 years - and he was kind enough to say he never felt I'd cut him short, just made him more concise. Conversely, years ago I fired F1 correspondent Jeff Hutchinson for filing rubbish.

    But yes, an engine strip would be interesting!
