Like some of you, I was very interested in the SP2 Honda.. I knew it would not be at the top level for power, but the weight reduction and electronics, not to mention handling should be good..

I really am quite pleased with my 1199S still, and with the rapidbike racing unit installed and hopefully resolving my fueling, I think I will be fine with it and my 675R for another 2 years.
Thanks from Kevin1199

Looking into Harleys. They upped their game with technology and new motor is solid. I live in NYC and riding around, and even parking isn't what it used to be. NGetting YET another sportbike doesn't appeal to me anymore. I thought about the new Honda and Suzuki as well as updates from Aprilia and Kawasaki, but there is nothing earth shattering. I have fun with my 1299S at track days and still harass people with my 12-year old ZX10R and other old bikes. The sportbike scene is dry now. Manufacturers only care about liter bikes and everything else doesn't matter. BUSA and Zx14 have been the same for almost a decade. No new 600's.....well...Yamaha put R1 bodywork on the same old R6. YEP. .....Touring or adventure bike for me. ��

Stepping away from Ducati I like the Norton Dominator/Dominator SS. It's not always about pure power and speed. But I'd really love a Sutter MMX for a trackday bike.

Now, I've just watched some reviews and I agree, I really wanted the SP2 to be awesome. But it seems like Honda waited to long to get into the electronics and they don't have the refinement and tuning the others do. It is kind of a disappointment, the SP2 had all the right ingredients, and the Honda engineers have the knowledge. I was told the SP2 was set up for the HRC race kit already and you could easily order it and install it, I figured that would set that bike up for instant success.
Sp2 is headed to race teams only. Unless it ends up like the R7 did, where they have a glut of them left after a couple years, Honda has already made it known they won't be really available to the public for a while. Same goes with the exotic kit parts. The SP and lower tier HRC parts (ECU etc) will be available to everyone else. But if it's like previous versions of HRC stuff, it will be really proprietary and hard to figure out. I had a fully HRC kitted 1000rr at one point and it was a nightmare getting anything done to it. Not to mention the cables to connect it to your computer were almost as much as the rest of the system.
