Not exactly, I think on one of the Italian websites... maybe http://www.Honda.it the kerb weight (fuelled etc) is quoted but not the dry weight (which I think most of us tend to use for comparison)

Honda have stopped quoting the dry weight as it doesn't mean anything in the real world. Who cares how much the bike weighs with no oil or fuel in it? It's no use in that condition! :D

...except that everyone else does seem to use it... kerb weight does make a lot more sense though...maybe other manu's will follow suit.

Yeah, hopefully. That said, the actual weight is only any use for calculating power-to-weight ratios. The real important stuff you can't record in numbers; like how it rides :D It's perfectly possible that a heavier bike can handle better than a lighter bike, it just depends on how it carries the weight right?
