Triple R6 and R1

http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-...les/21621.html

Interesting article - makes sense though

Can't wait to see the Honda V4 and the Yamaha triples!

Attack life. It's going to kill you anyways

So Yamaha's idea of differentiating itself is to copy Triumph? That's original.

Although maybe this will cause Triumph to finally give us a 1050 Daytona. If both companies pressure WBK to relax their regulations it might happen.

Often Imitated, Never Duplicated

That's what Triumph will be saying soon

I think its pretty cool. Honda going to V4s, Yammy and triumph with triples, kawi and suzi with i4s, duc with twins...us sportbikers will have a veritable cornucopia of motorcycle choices that are actually different from one another.

1100 Daytona, not 1050, we don't need that anchor of an engine

But I'm more than doubtful about what's said there.

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

I was watching the Aragon race earlier, and said to myself...
"why does, Honda not release a V4 for the public?"

Going to be interesting what Yamaha releases as well.

+1, with a dedicated oil cooler like the 1050 has.
