Re: Of Course You Don't

Funny how that "perfect" configuration is a complete sales flop.

Sometimes something that appears perfect on paper is far from it in the real world.

Re: Of Course You Don't

Honda's VFR has had solid sales figures for some 20 years. I would not describe that as a "complete sales flop". Honda, however, needs to vastly improve the output of the bike and in doing so may need to re-design the current motor. Along with that they could stand to update the body work, but "sales flop" hardly. Anyway- NO ONE else has even bothered working with a V-4 configuration in a sport model. Honda, at the very least, has that going for them.

NEWS FLASH! BIG FOUR NOT TO BUILD 800 FOURS!

Honda: "We do extremely well with both 600s and 1000s, sales-wise ... I don't think at this point there's necessarily room in the marketplace for another mass-market bike."

Yamaha: "The opportunity for us is to build off of the success of platforms we already have in place, not create a new platform to compete with those."

Kawasaki: "How long are [MotoGP bikes] going to be 800s?... Why develop an 800cc replica if it will be obsolete in two years?"

Suzuki: "We've already got a 750 that's an excellent motorcycle, with a long history. To develop an all-new 800cc MotoGP replica that would cannibalize GSXR-750 sales doesn't make much sense for Suzuki, does it?"

Re: one word for ya..

Well, if one is good with a knitting-needle, perhaps "real" is in the eye of the beholder...............

Even if socko is a "real" person, he's not "for real". He's a joke: there is no possible way that any sane person could act the way that this man does, and not hang themselves or open their wrist due to the profound unhappiness this person's psyche displays on this forum.

He is completely psychotic, and is probably a danger to himself and everyone in his immediate vicinity.

You forgot him showing you his tail-lights. Of course, you'd have to go into his garage to see them - hope you return from that.........

Speaking of Ducati....

MO, I just read the terribly written review of the Hypermotard at motorcycledaily and I'm eagerly awaiting the MO article on that sweet, sweet nectar of a bike. Please tell me it's coming soon!



(btw, check that site out for the awesome pic of Xaus (i assume) sliding one handed)

Can you cause Kay-Pee to be hit by lightning or trampled to death by a herd of wild catfish, or maybe fall into the sewers of Seattle and be eaten by the Alligators?



Please?

A hord of angry tricyclist are descending upon him as this is written. After they have removed the training wheels from his fictional ride, they will humiliate him on the track of his choosing. Will that suffice?

Only if the 3-year-olds rough him up a bit, make him eat a bug, and leave him with gum in his hair and a lollipop stuck to his forehead..........
