    Any car that merely takes you from A-B does not go far enough.

    Yes - but wheels are different colours?

    It's really an amazing machine, 100hp twin, pretty much 25hp more than nearest Twin motorcycle, Kawasaki Ninja 650, Suzuki SV650 and Yamaha MT-07 are looking like a commuter bikes rather than a competition. CBR650R has less power and more weight and it's inline-4. Power to weight ratio like my older RSV1000R but with better frame and bags of electronics. This thing will have 5 riding modes, traction control, wheelie control, cornering abs, quickshifter, adjustable engine braking, LED lights, cruise control and will let you connect your phone to the dash so you can display things like Sat Nav or who is calling. all for 8000pounds... WINNER !

    Spec sounds great, its closest in price to the Honda though as all the others are over £1k cheaper but it seems to be in between the supersports 600 and "sports" 650s. Closer to the SS imo looking at the seating position.
