  2. Good to see the Caponord back. The 2002 model wasn't to bad.

    A hypermotard for pussies, well ok.

    the Honda 500's, yawn

    Street Triple R - nice

    The F6B - been done before, it was called a Valkerie (it didn't sell well).

    Kawasaki can't compete with other 600's so makes a 636 - again.

    Vstrom 650, isn't that already here?

    That guzzi looks interesting.

    As for the rest - ho hum, interesting if that sort of things your bag.

  3. Like this quote about the KTM 390 -
    No word on when this little hooligan is making it Stateside, but when it does, you’re going to want one. Why? 320lbs (wet) and 44bhp combined with quality suspension and brakes. Oh, and signs point to a price around $6,500. Worth waiting for.
    Been thinking about it as a commuter

  4. The 390 Duke looks fun, know the 200 is already here, what's the word on the 390?
    Think the honda 500s will make an impact if they can keep the price down.

    See here for some more info - https://netrider.net.au/threads/duke-390.137013/

    The 500's are up on Honda's Australian site but I did not see any pricing mind you I was not looking very hard.

    Edit they have set up a specifice 500 site http://honda500.com.au/ but no pricing there.

    Cheers
