    2019 model. 243 hp. That's enough hp to get you into trouble really fast.

    I am not sure where sexy comes from unless you just want to look at it in your driveway. To actually get on and punish it takes a lot of work. Several Gs can be had at any moment. My son wants me to help him turbo charge a GXSR. Not sure why since they get along just fine straight out of the showroom. For me drag strips and closed circuit tracks are the way to go. I guess my age has something to do with it. Thanks

    The first time I rode my 1100 Yamaha, I grabbed a hard 2nd gear & it took the bars right out of my hands. I can't imagine 243 horsepower.

    I'm thinking population control device is what 243hp on two wheels results in. Great looking bike.

    Beauty is and always has been, in the eye of the beholder.

    Italians are well known for bright red and flowing lines. Be it a car or a m/c. I'm too old and too big to mount that Ducati. Ideally, the rider would be about 5-07 and 150 lbs. tops.

    Oh yeah, and be young. Young enough to still have a very flexible spine.

    Motorcycles have always been an adrenaline thing for me. Not just a mode of transportation. I've never owned a sedate m/c, except for the two Yamaha BW-200's dirt bikes that we own.

    If I wanted to just mosey on down the highway, I'd own a Harley. For me, it has to be similar to getting into a fighter jet, when I get ready to go for a ride. My current BMW is more an of A-10 than an F-35. But.....it still produces enough adrenaline in me to get the job done.

    Saw a Crocker at a museum in Solvang, Calif. That machine was THE best one there, and he had some doozies! I’ll see if I can find the pics in my files, I made a special trip by the museum on a trip up from my in-laws place in San Clemente, about 2 1/2 hrs outa our way, but worth every minute!:p
