I didn't know Honda was such a big player in Europe. Especially over BMW. Gotta love that GS!
I'm betting on the price being the winning factor.

Yeah, I would have thought Triumph would have had better sales in Europe too. I didn't know Honda did so well in Europe, either. I thought they were losing popularity? And Kawasaki is supposed to be gaining popularity.
