Great suggestion... We did have this one up in October 2014: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=50145 but there are 3 others, is a different version what you had in mind or?

Sorry I didn't realize it was already posted. I saw it in my current copy of Cycle World and was very impressed with the power and weight. It also looks so retro but is very modern.

Agreed, in fact, I also got the same magazine by mail as well. :) There are 4 different versions though.

It might not be worthy of it's own week as we have covered the Street Triple before, but the 2015 Rx model is a thing of beauty.

Oooo, very good point! I was going to put up the new 2016 Indian, but maybe we should do a Honda then?

Wow, 3 great choices to pick from this week... A Honda (any), a new Indian and a Triumph Rx... argh.

Well, I have to yield preference to the new model (although, 2 more have been launched this week...a V7II Racer Limited Edition and a Ducati S2R), but the Indian for this week and a Honda next... I agree, the Triumph Rx is really great looking, I'll include that coming up then on the Wall. :)

No reviews on the new beginner class bikes...300cc is the new 250cc

Yamaha's is the newest, but any of them would be cool!

Not now ... but perhaps in the fall when more information is available ...

The new Honda 2016 CRF1000L Africa Twin

Is this a rebirth of a legend and will North American's embrace this moto with the purchasing dollars?

Safe Travels,
Richard

Hey, Mike,

Is there a concise list, perhaps in alphabetical order, of everything we've reviewed since this feature started? I could probably come up with some suggestions, but don't want to duplicate previous reviews. Thx.

The Isle of Man TT is over for another year and Victory scored an impressive 3rd and 4th with the Zero Challenge, even more impressive that Guy Martin was able to score a solid forth as a replacement rider with only a couple of practice laps to get use to the machine. However, it was the King of the Mountain, John McGuinness riding for Team Mugen who won that race almost a full minute and a half ahead of the top Victory rider, and clocked a lap speed of over 119 MPH on six lap 226 mile race. Therefore I would like to suggest the Mugen Shinden San as the next bike for consideration on the cool wall.
Always ask why.

It's only in prototype form but the pictures are out there. The KTM 390 Adventure looks like it will be a good one. After being blown away by the 390 Duke I am not sure how it couldn't be awesome.

That's a great result for the Victory/Brammo. John McGuninness is an amazing TT rider, I've watched the TT now for several years and it's always my favorite race!

I looked into the Mugen Shinden San, but it's not a production bike (?) and Mugen is an accessory company (it's actually Honda Shinden San / Team Mugen). For the Cool Wall, it has to be a bike from the TMW Guides (1970 to 2016). Not sure if that helps or not with your request.

Do you have a KTM link to that model? I can't seem to find it on the main KTM international or Canada site.
