Forget all you know about the ETV1000 Caponord. The only thing that remains the same is the fact that the engine is still a V-Twin, but this time it uses the big 1197cc V90 from the Dorsoduro maxi-motard.
2013 Suzuki Motorcycle Lineup – Nothing to get excited about. That new GSX-R1000 front end looks a little Gundam, and the Hayabusa is even uglier than before.
On the other hand, Six New 2013 Honda Models Announced for US, and the CB1000R somewhat tickles my fancy. I like those big standards. Comfortable, they are.
I sure do like this here new 2012 MV Agusta Brutale 675.
Although, I’ll have to reserve judgement on the aesthetics of the 3-into-3 exhaust with that massive heat shield until I can see one in person.
Yet More Nice Bikes: 2012 Literbike Streetfighter Shootout – Video – Motorcycle.com.
I like the look of the Aprilia the most.
Aprilia Wheelie Control can be set to three levels, and it does a great job of bringing the front wheel down in a gentle way. This being a raucous streetfighter, our favorite setting was “off.”
I really like the look of that bike. Unfortunately, I don’t think there are any Aprilia dealerships within 100 miles of here.
