Was Vyrus's attempt to enter Moto 2 I think - not sure it ever made it though

The Honda CMX500 Rebel definitely caught my eye.

This year though aiming for the full bike test, few rideouts on the 125 & plenty of photographs of travels.

But definitely not taking this out on any track!

That CMX500 definitely was unusual.
Not sure if it was a concept or not, but Honda had a naked CB1000R type looking bike at the Milan bike show - it was an eye catcher.

Oh yes, and the GSX-R 1000 was looking as lustful as ever, and I'm glad they've changed the awkward switchgear on the left bar!

They're starting to look better, but still not quite there I don't think - will have one though for sure when price drops and range increases

Guess you've seen the Lightning 218?

Just love the way they include the range between re-charges. Not exactly a zero emission.

What d'ya mean? They're energy agnostic, so if you use greenly produced electricity they're zero emission, if not the evidence is that they're still better than an ICE engined vehicles

Will stop horrific build up of tailpipe emissions in cities too
