    Yup, great bikes! First bike I ever owned that was street legal. I also was hoping for the 900 that never came to the US. Mine was a red 92 but I really loved the blue on the 900.

    To my eye, the 850 looks a whole lot better than the 900.
    The 900 styling is "bulgy" & messy.

    (And red is faster...)

    Is that a Suzuki RV in the background? Might be the 90cc - it isn't the 125.

    I need a bronx more than I'm willing to admit. MAKE IT, HARLEY!!

    I saw a prototype in the flesh once, and was definitely intrigued (couldn't care less about the PA next to it).

    Then they canned it for that sportster S abomination! Figures. Bronx is a proper standard naked. Sportster S is, again, a slammed power cruiser with balloon tires... Come on.

    favorite bike I ever owned. effortless cruising at 90mph, it always snuck up on me. "I SWEAR I was still doing 65," never appeased the officers.

    The Honda CB400 NC36 will be legal to import next year.

    It weighs the same as the Royal Enfield 650s and puts out a handful more horsepower. I’d be totally okay with that.

    Great engine, but they ruined them with the bad tank graphics, decals, and late 80's/early 90's looking alloys. The combination just makes them look very dated. Shame, really.

    Spoke wheels and a simple chrome tank badge and it would be a totally different bike.

    These are so funky looking, in a good way, and the rider triangle looks right up my alley. If these came to North America, I would at least want to go test ride one.

    Looks like a Ducati Scrambler without the L twin.

    That short tail section and rear fender thing reminded me of this. Which coincidentally is the bike I want today

    I'm surprising myself by not hating this. I wouldn't spend $25K on this (assuming I had $25K lying around), but I'd love to do the Smackdab Run on this next year.

    $25k is about right for a faired bagger from a premium manufacturer
