Big H

So the Honda's are fairly reliable then taking all 5 top spots,  mind you I must agree,  I'm having all sorts of problems with the sparking on my 51 year old BSA A7 Shooting Star!!

Only Honda I've ever owned for a lengthy amount of time was an NC30.

I spent more hours poking and prodding it in the garage than I did riding it...

lol all honda's

have owned two honda's blackbird and a vfr800 and had nothing but trouble with both electrical problems on both so cant say I found honda reliable but heard others who swear by them but I aint one of them. Yamaha is the most reliable make I have had.

#1 an SP2?

Hardly and SP2......Sure they are thin on the ground in owners numbers terms? :blink:

Habing owned all last 3 blades in succession bar the new small 2008 onwards model. From 2003 they were all good, never had any issues.

Blade all the way, the finish on them until the new one from 2008 was pretty good.

Where are the exotics?

Odd how the Italian exotica the press rave so much about rarely makes an appearance on the reliability tests... which show how good the bikes are when you actually own them over a few years. I'm not surprised the SP2 is top Banzai, they are a bit rare, but a better put together motorcycle you will not find, the finish is extraordinary, a lot better than even the new VFR12, which is very nicely put together.
