Check out the gearing!

Talk about close ratios! With a 150 lb rider it goes to 75 mph in 1st in 3 seconds with 1 G of grip. I figure it takes 580 lb of thrust to get it there and about 10% more than that is available in 1st. It won't power wheely in 2cd with the rider tucked.

Speed in gears:

1 75

2 95

3 115

4 135

5 155

6 172 all at 15,000 rpm shift points.

I'm assuming a 150 lb rider. Sorry, big guy.

What is the freaking URL for that 2003 honda preview?

I assumed you could get to it off the main page but I did not find it. I know the secret password but I can't find the URL. Am I too early? I thought it was 9:30pm central.

According to the Honda website, they'll have their '03's (and a few '04 sneak peaks) on their site starting tomorrow. What a great year for new bikes so far!!!

Re: NICKY HAYDEN TO GPS

No fookin' way. There is no way that Honda is running a factory team in the top flight class of racing with a non-Japanese rider. Torhu Ukawa will stay, they won't send him to the Fortune or Pons team.

If they are the same referred to in Honda's 9-13-02 PR, the other bikes/vehicles are the Ruckus (scooter), an AquaTrax (pers. watercraft), Valkyrie Rune*, VTX 1300C*, CRF250R*, CFR250X*, and FourTrax Rancher AT*.



*early release 2004 models



If these are indeed the same 8, the Blackbird and SuperHawk may not be updated.

The new R6 looks awesome and so does some of the pics I've seen from the new Honda 600 RR from the Honda UK site.



I currently own a ZX-6R and can't wait for Kawasaki to release their new one.



Man, what a great year this is going to be for the 600's. I want to ride them all.

Teensy pictures look interesting, but I'm compelled to stay away from CBRs until the well-known cam-chain tensioner problems are definitively sorted out. Anyone know how much progress they've made on this, and whether the dealers are still mostly stonewalling about it all?
