“The new Sprint ST looks absolutely sensational. When do they intend to produce the RS (half-faired version)? Kauput

Sprint ST: “Waaaaaaaaant!” snapesbabe

“What have they done to the Speed Triple? It looks like it’s been rammed up the *rse by a ten ton truck – the pig-ugliest bike on the block. But I love the Sprint ST – just gorgeous.” Gjames06

“The new Speed Triple is stunning,” spondon 955. “It will give the Italian naked exotica a run for their money,” kitlloyd. “It makes all the competition look naff/expensive.” Bluespeed.

“Disappointed that they went for the quick and nasty option to upgrade the Daytona 650.” Graeme355

“Triumph, why don’t you stick a third cylinder on the T-100? That would give us a powerful 1300cc classic.” PimLegendTT

BMW’s K1200R: “But my God it’s an ugly brute!” 52BlackShadow

KTM SuperDuke: “I absolutely love the KTM Super Duke. It looks really different. Can’t wait to have a go on one.” Macbeth

Yamaha MT-01: “My bike of the year so far because it looks like an aggressive beast just like the V-Max did when it first appeared 20 years ago.” Juniper

Rossi’s R6 paintjob: “Oh my god! He could win every race back to back but with a scheme that bad I would rather keep last year’s bike.” Jason Hall. “Yuck. He should really stick to riding the things,” trixR4kidz

Suzuki GSX-R1000: “It’s all set to steal the show,” keyurbhagat
