Snow at the CBR600RR launch

Snow and freezing temperatures at the press launch of the 2013 Honda CBR600RR ensured that the myriad changes to the bike Honda remain, for now, untested. The repackaged CBR features new 41mm Big Piston Forks, a remapped ECU for improved mid and upper-range engine performance, plus a pair of Fireblade-style 12-spoke ally wheels --  modifications that Honda hope will improve...

hmm

well the front end looks like an r6 and to be honest this bike may look lovely but its just do damn expensive.

plenty of second hand bargains on ebay around 4K with next to no miles on them and be honest..

Adjustable Riding Modes?

All my motorcycles have adjustable riding modes - engine response varies by how fast I rotate the right grip.  Traction control too, by the same method.

New Honda.

Couldn't be ridden in snow and freezing conditions? Like most new bikes today then, totally impractical and the reason they're hidden away in garages and sheds for 6 months of the year. And they wonder why bike sales are dropping and scooter sales are on the up. C'mon, it's not rocket science!

Maybe dealers could rent them out?

April to September, tuck them away in cozy dry storage over the winter.

You know, that started to sound less crazy as I was typing it...

Onya piglet. Too many pussies these days. I was reading a magazine, AMCN, the Aussie cousin to this site, and one of the testers complained that she didn't like the ZX10R because it didn't have a power shifter as standard. Like she'd ever really need one on the street. Like she was that good a rider, the lack of a power shifter tested her limits. Dumb fucks.

Speed Shifter

Yes, the only need for a speed-shifter is in racing where everyone's bike has about the same power, so every little advantage counts.

By the way, I have a “speed shifter” on my Honda Dullsville – I can pre-load the shifter, and when I hit the rev-limiter, it snicks right into the next gear. :)

That's Top Trumps biking for you

I made the mistake of leafing through one of the Kneedown Speedhoon Monthly rags, and it was banging on about how this year's ZXRZ1000ZZRXR was something like 200 grams lighter than last years. Or, and bear with me here, you could just take the fake sponsor stickers off of your race replica and cut the rinds off your bacon.
