    Ooooooh, very nice!

    Congrats! I'm in this one until the next CB, mostly because my current CB will probably be paid off about same time new one arrives lol.

    Congrats, guys! VERY sweet looking bikes! I do hope BMW has overcome the strange, inexplicable engineering oversights I grew up with....like K bikes boiling fuel in the tanks and such. I never understood how the Teutons could miss such obvious design flaws....

    Yeah me too mate, I did a lot of homework before making the move with this, to satisfy myself.

    Although this bike is a new face lift model much of the tech and engineering is already proven.

    No bike is perfect, even early models of our beloved CB had a recall (tail light).

    Same with me and the Suzuki Mel,it does make you grin, although the Honda is still no slouch on acceleration.

    Too true Dave - I would have gladly stuck with Honda if they had spent some time and money on the CB.

    I was watching a vid the other night on the "new" Fireblade and it seems that, apart from the electrics that is just a fettling of the previous bike.

    Come on Honda lets have some real product development.
