Sigh. Wrong again. The RC212V was 800cc.

By "GT badge", I'm comparing the repsol 1krr to the 600 & 250. Not other 1krrs. Now we've got 600 repsols and 250 repsols. See where I'm coming from? Nothing to get the panties in a bunch over.

What about HRC schemes? At least it's still Honda. Nothing to get your panties in a bunch over.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

Quick question.... Has Honda ever released stock consumer sports bikes that have Repsol design that weren't superbikes? If not, it's a matter of a tradition and the spirit therein being broken .. which, given what its being broken for, indeed cheapens the repsol released 1000rr.

I personally got a red and black 12' 1000rr. I don't care for things that are too flashy. I guess BMW should start slapping the M badge on its whole fleet too. It's just a badge. Slap that sucker on errrthang'

Repsol edition costs more, resale is more, and is more desired overall. "Eat shit" to all haters

Your example proved MY point, and thank you. They do have an M version of all models just about, M5...M3...even and M for the 1 series. Same as having a Repsol version of all CBR's.

I love having people on my side.

BTW, the M badge isn't just a color/powdercoat change like the Repsol. It's actual performance enhancements.
