I like the concept, if it's actually under 350 lbs, that's amazing.

Actually I think it's just a reflection of the economy. Even with no rent, no bills except a cell phone, a traditional teenager's job doesn't provide enough disposable income to pay for anything other than (buy-all-the-execs-multiple-yachts-&-overseas-vacations+our-congress-people+stadium-naming-rights+skycrapers-in-every-major-city+endless-commercials-on-every-billboard-every-radio-every-tv-channel-all-day-everyday) insurance.

Next time, quote the whole post and then you'll understand there was nothing incorrectly typed.

Okay you're saying you were impressed by their liter bike so are itching to try their 660cc. I expected the RSV4 to be an older version of the ~600cc class that was brought up in the article.

There's a reason I replied in the form of a question, instead of a statement. I never intentionally do a partial quote for the purpose of changing the meaning of a sentence. I read the entire post more than once before quoting the excerpt... and just read it again. I still came with the same interpretation as the excerpt. The key was looking up the RSV4 and realizing that it was a liter bike, instead of an older revision of the 600-class featured in the article.

The orignial post was in response to the post before it about the RSV4. I just didn't quote the person as it was a seamless transitional post.

Nevertheless, I'm interested in both bikes. The RSV4 moreso, but the sound of the 660 gave me

. I think the manufacturer is doing great things just like Yamaha and other OEMs.
