How badly do you want one, I have a couple in boxes (many many boxes). One of the motors will need a full rebuild though, and it's not cheap.

TBH, they're not really that much fun, get yourself an NC35 if you're looking for a 400. Having said that, I've one mate who loves them over all the other 400s. I have another mate who put one into the front of a car on the main street of town when we were 18 Cost him a cracked shoulder IIRC.

+1 My friends and I all did the same at the NYC show.

You would think Cagiva could source (or produce) another motor?

I vote for the KTM690 motor.

I do not know the connection with Laverda though, except that Laverda Jota's, Mirage's and Montjuic's were actually assembled in England, not Italy.
Ta Bluey. For the well wishes and the info. A true Australian drops the "L"; so you get Straya. Disgusting habit in my books. Other Americans call us Strines, accordingly.

Straya Day is often marred by drunken bloodshed: dckheads wrapped in the Australian flag beating up migrants. This is the first symptom of politicians' keen desire to radically mix up the whole of the worlds' population. Fortunately the media doesn't seem to have reported any rubbish yet.

Impressive but I think I would've gone down the road you chose Syscrush. Trailers scare me.

More Scariness

Three chics, no men, an outfit and a trailer (aka The Fun Box). At least I think that's woman in the doorway. Terrifying.

Nice repost. That was 2010.

Nope. 7 out of 8 dentists agree, it was a good attempt at a mid-priced shot.

Maybe it's Terry Gilliam! Good grief those guys could crack me up!

just kidding.

I've gotta say, I love the looks of a naked bike with clip-ons. That's how I had my SV set up back in the day, but this bike is far prettier:

I agree, low grips certainly do add to a different (and good) look (which is more than I can say for those ugly dual pipes on each side). I'm actually seriously looking at a few 06/07 s2r and s4rs. I've got my cash together, now I just need to find the right one. Then my wife will get my SV. I had settled on the Guzzi Griso 8V, but considering how few of them are sold in the US, I doubt I'll find a used one in my price range.

I'm not sure if we've seen this on here or not. If so, I missed it. The best part is, no 'cafe racer' sticker! I think the coffee/cafe emblem is unnecessary, but still subtle enough.
