It looks cool and all that, but when that kid on the 650 Ninja smokes you, wearing a plaid shirt, a backpack full of books and a gallon of milk hangin off his handle bar, that wont matter much.

Is this what it is all about? Smoking and being smoked? Owning the "fastest" bike on the planet?

Funny, that is, but I have the nicest times with any of my motorcycles, when I am parked somewhere and I run into guys who like to talk about them...

I see both of your points. It would certainly piss me off that a bike a little more than half the size of mine could smoke me. But its cool having a bike with some character and not just another plastic bug...... That bike does absolutely nothing for me.

+1 Russ, it does nothing for me either and it's just another Cafe' bike....but this one I have been watching development of for 4 years does plenty for me, and I know an engineer that's been working on this one....the latest on it is they are having issues with cooling it with the lower fairing on it not shown in this picture....plus at the same time meeting Euro 4 emission standards....they are working on it!!!!

I do like the cooling fins on the cylinders and head on the cafe style bike in the first pic, but I would like that bike more if it's ass were a little more like the second bike.

Anyone know what that black finish is on the fork tubes of the cafe bike? Is it a black chrome or some type of ceramic coating?

Its just a personal point of view, but I think a full liter bike should be able to scare the living shit out of you. And unless somebody turns left in front of you on that bike, it aint going to do it.

I always have a good time talking to folks about bikes too. There's usually a crowd around my 1100F with guys regaling their buddies with tales of cop chases and female conquests. Most of the guys I ride with ride Harleys. We have good times.

That looks like a CB1300S that has been for sale in Europe for quite a few years now...????

It could be either DLC (Diamond Like Coating) or Titanium Nitride coating. I think DLC is black and TiN is usually gold but other colors are available. They are applied to fork sliders over the chrome to lower surface friction and improve suspension compliance.

Triumph went that way with the Thruxton, plenty of older blokes bought them because of memories of the earlier ones, then discovered the riding position is only for younger blokes so they ended back on the market
