Yes, you can now buy the Norton Commando's. :D (note they are much cheaper in the UK than in North America)

The Norton guy at the motorcycle show told me that the Commando on display is the first one in North America and that when they become available this spring they will be selling for about $21,000 cdn.

With all this chat about the Norton, should it be the bike on Friday then or have you all chatted yourselves out about it? haha.

I'd vote for the Honda Crossrunner too. I really don't know what to make of it.

Maybe we should wait until next year for the Crossrunner? I don't think any real live production Crossrunners actually exist, like there's nothing around someone could really touch or sit on (let alone test ride). I think all we have are photos of a concept bike shown at EICMA. It's "supposed" to be in production in 2011 though.

Maybe we should do the VFR1200F and/or VFR1200FD next? Those are actually for sale in showrooms now - I sat on one in December.

It would be easier if it's out to rate it, but it's not necessary. I do need another suggestion for the next bike or I'll pick one and you might not like it. :D

hahaa.

How about the VFR1200FD? That's the "clutchless" model, works in full automatic or manual paddle shift mode. That ought to stir up some conversation.

How about the Zero electric motorcycle? I read somewhere (was it here?) that a police department somewhere in the US has ordered a fleet of them.

I think the new wonky-eyed Speed Triple is potentially controversial, and to a lesser extent, so is the 800cc Tiger.
