Ahhhh....the W650.




I can't believe Kawi couldn't sell enough of these here in the States to justify keeping it in the lineup over here. :'(

I mean c'mon people.....look and listen. (Turn your speakers waaay up at about :32) ;)

Just a couple others I thought worthy of posting.

I'm sure this one's been seen before. Mike Hailwood replica from a 1st gen SV


Not a big fan of the chrome headers and swingarm, but another great looking 550

Well this is the cool bike pic thread isn't it??

Look, Variable9, this is your thread, if you don't want what I posted in it then let me know, and I'll delete them. Don't want anyone to miss a chance to see how nice 70's honda fins are...
Its all good, I did say 'not the egregiously ugly bikes' but it IS all open to interpretation I suppose! How bout more cool bike pics in general?

I have not seen this before ... do you have any more pictures of it?

That is far out!
Just one other, not really sure where I found it. Just searching for cafe racers one day.

I tried out one of the new Enfields recently too. If you don't go into a test ride on one without having a pretty good idea of what to expect, you'll be disappointed. There are lots of magazine and online reviews that pretty much sum up what the bikes are......as well as what they're not.

They score very well on the "fun" scale as long as your idea of fun includes riding a bike with decades-old technology and doing so at a leisurely pace. I'd like to have one just for putting around the back roads on perfect Sunday afternoons.

Here's the one I tried:

From an RD350 thread:



Designed by Tamburini and first seen back in 2001, the MV Agusta Brutale is still winning beauty contests in 2007. At this year’s EICMA show in Milan, Motociclismo magazine asked visitors to vote for the bike which they thought was the most beautiful, and the 2008 Brutale 1078RR won, with 25.7 percent of visitors voting in its favour. The Ducati Monster 696 came in second with 15.2 percent votes, while the BMW HP2 Sport was in third place, with 9.2 percent votes.

This cool race version probably helped:
