New clutch parts for Hayden from HRC to help him with his starts? With two races left Nicky can't finish 2nd behind Rossi in either one of them unless he finishes ahead of him in the other race - if he wants to win the championship. So, why are they waiting till the last two races to fix this problem, which has been around all year???

Yes. V4-800 cc street sportbike maybe. 800 cc street sportbike definitely ZX-8R and GSXR800 are making the rumor boards. The Great Motorcycle Prophet has spoken.

Seems like a perfect time to do a "real" update on the Interceptor. I can see good things coming from this.

GMP predictions

There will be a new class of 800 cc sportbikes for the street.
[*] A brand new Honda Interceptor (much like the orignal) will hit the market. This Interceptor will be a sportbike not a sport tourer Optons will include ABS and Traction Control[*]Rumors from Japan are circulating about a ZX-8R to replace the hole left by the discontinuation of the venerable ZX-7R[*]A 50cc increase will make the GSXR750 the bike of the year i.e GSXR800[*]A Yamaha R-8? Yes 8 is considered a lucky number in Asia

God has revealed to kpaul, the Great Motorcycle Prophet (GMP), that the V-4 800 cc is the holy engine configuration.

I actually gave you credit for that days ago. Didn't you say that you predicted a new 800 cc sprtbike class coming to life soon? I could have been mistaken.

I'm not a buell booster but I have to point out to everyone's dismay that this bike's styling cues-- aggressive stance, extreme commitment to mass-centralization, underslung exhaust, stubby tail-- all remind me of Buell. They'd probably put the fuel in the frame and use rim-mounted rotors if they thought they could get away with it without getting ridiculed....



Ah but there I've started the usual Buell discussion...really, I don't mean to troll.



I guess it takes companies like Buell and KTM to take chances with styling.



I'm looking forward to the 800cc era. 1000cc is too much, unless you're really big, but then you're probably not going to fit on a little bitty sport bike anyway.

The GPTB is the home of the techy paranoid not kpaul.. kpaul loves technology.
