CBR500? Yes please!

I currently own a CB500 and absolutely love it, but in the end I would like to get an FI bike with a fairing. I wanted to stick to a twin, so the only viable options to me were the ER6F or NC700X, but this story of an revamped CB/R 500 has made my day! :) I can see it being a real seller if priced accordingly. I will most certainly be buying one in the future if funds allow me.

Sigh...

Bautista gets his 1st ever MotoGP poduim (as a privateer just behind Rossi) on Marco's bike at Marco's track & Rossi gets the headline?... understandable... it sells papers... but it still sucks.

Although the Gresini team is a private team the bike is a works one as it was agreed for the team to have prior to Marco's untimely and incredibly sad death, can't believe it's nearly a year ago.

So Bautista's debut podium, sadly though he is as dull as dishwater hence MCN being the headline about Rossi's first dry podium on the Duke.

I'd rather the headline was about a titanic tussle between Dani and Jorge, sadly Barbera put paid to that one.

Would it not be better to allow those riders to pay their respects in their own way? Whatever your feelings, they marked the occasion and did not let it go by unremarked upon.

MCN - "Bautista has struggled for much of 2012 with the Gresini squad opting to switch from Ohlins to Showa suspension"

Evidently factory support doesn't mean he's on the same bike as the factory boys.

not sure i agree that Bautista is as dull as dishwater, and even though he suffered more than most from Simoncelli's over agressive out of control riding, he still dedicated his podium to Marco. he comes across as a thoroughly nice guy and is also a very good rider, a little more respect is deserved. Good Luck Alvaro!

Max scooters

I've been reading MCN for 30 years....whats happening?

Bikings about excitment, passion, speed, desire..........Nobody wants to fantasise about Maxi scooters, and other dull 2 wheeled stuff!!

Maxi-Scooters and CB500

I wish Honda would bring back a 250cc scooter to the US – still light enough to be handy, but fast enough for controlled access road use without having to be prepared to bail out on the shoulder all the time.

And if they keep the weight down, a Honda CB500 would be a nice real world ride.
