Which manufacturer has the best bike range?

In next week's MCN, technical expert Kevin Ash discusses how Kawasaki has methodically rejuvenated its range of bikes, so that it now has an impressive model in almost every category. Find a Kawasaki for sale So if you were to rate each of the major manufacturers' ranges, who would come out top? Here's a quick summary of how they stack up...

Sucking up to Triumphs

Donnythebul. Have you ever ridden a Triumph? have you ever owned a Triumph.....well I have, I have been riding for 36 years and had all the Jap bikes from Yamaha 350YR5 to a Suzuki 750 GT, Kawa plenty the 5 Triumphs (3x955's and 2x675's) give me more pleasure than any of the previous 15 bikes i have when MCN reports the Triumphs are good....they really are....and besides they are British..

Best Range is free range.......Oh yeah!!!

The manufacturer with the best range it would seem would be BMW,alas without a hot little rocket 600(could use 1000 engine for building block) & 125,again like Triumph nice flexible 125 lc engine used for 3-4 different models.The cruiser is an easy one seen as thought they now have that in line six 1600 engine,move over DIAVEL-V-MAX.......:shock:

Triumph close on their heels.They need a good 125 lc engine which can be used for 3-4 different models,Tiger 1.25,Tiger 1.25 SM, DAYTONA 1.25 R & 1.25 Urban.

Yamaha-Honda have a full house but BORING and INSIPID and OVER PRICED ring true(Blade not bad especially in REPSOL COLS).

Kawasaki need a BIG trailie(VERSYS 1000 anyone?) and a better range as a lot of their bikes seem geared toward sports.......

Suzuki need to bring back the DV 1000 engine in a genuine fresh design inthe guise of PARIS-DAKAR.

Ducati are CRAZY for not converting the 1200 engine to shaft drive and producing a genuine tourer.Also they could have used the Mulitistrada engine for a new ST bike to take on Triumph.

I wonder if they could have adapted or at least used the blue prints of the V4 engine for a 600,as the L TWINS  are starting to become old school now?

I notice KTM weren't invited,shame,as they have some good bikes.
