Honda - Kawasaki cup battle if it weren't for our one lovely Italian triple challenger. ONE R6. Zero Suzukis or Triumphs. And the Honda is a 2007...

I am curious what new bike will be next to come out and be that next overdog. This is a fun class, so many of us are riding these things. Recently sold my 600rr (yes, it really did feel that great) and picked up its big brother. Really enjoyed watching Van derM last yr. Hoping for another entertaining season.

P.S. anyone else wish there were 848's in here too?

GO P.J.!

agree with everything haha
especially the 848s. Wish the triumphs were back though. Supersport is one of my fav series but the grid has been shrinking and the gaps seem to be growing. Here's to a good 2015!
