I havenít been this excited about a bike since the 998. I just want one should have a proper job in 6 months and I know just what im going to buy I donít care how much it cost I donít care the insurance is going to be through the roof I want one ( in red ).
You go for it mate. I felt the same about the 916. Finnally got a 996. Still well happy after 8 years of good times together. Best of luck with the job.

Bullshit they are. This is plagarism at it's most obvious. It simply perpetuates the notion....MCN great pics, **** substance. ONLY the Italian journalists were present at the initial track test and who were invited into the R & D department at the factory BEFORE the official launch (and long before the leaked photos broke cover) to see the bike in it's entirety, and whose subsequent article was released AFTER the launch. MCN will sell their grandmother to the highest bidder and might as well be a worthy sister publication to the "SUN", another infamous adult comic.

Not a fan of MCN then Rod???

My MCN says the test was written by Federico Alivieri, with pics by Allesio Barbanti. Federico 2nd paragraph mentions his "Italian colleagues at Motociclismo, when we had an exclusive preview ride at Monza."
