I had the 848 evo and loved it but would never commute on one. My next bike will prob be the panigale but I will always keep an R6 in the garage.

You realize that Suzuki was the one to copy the single headlight idea from MV Agusta (not the other way around)... Right?



..and that machine is a work of art. Horsepower numbers and weight are not the only factors that go into whether a bike is capable or not.

BTW, single headlights have been around forever... before sportbikes and from the earliest of supersports...

No argument there, but that particular angular design with the reflector housing directly above the high-beam housing (which is a reflector in some cases and a projector in others) was coined by MV, was it not? I learned that little tidbit from reading one of your posts a long while back, IIRC..
