Ducati with Triumph as a close 2nd. Followed by Kawi for "sensible" and economic reasons.

I have no favorite. A couple come close to being least favorite, though.

Best comeback: Triumph
Most stylish: Ducati, Aprilia a close second

Yamaguchi. Tiddlerosis is good for you. But from your list Aprilia since it is Italian and close to Guzzi(which is not on the list).

It's tough to choose a favorite, but Honda would be my choice, with Yamaha a very close second. Kawasaki has to be my least favorite. Even after a Chinese built moped.

Dont think I could pick one but I like KTM. BMW maybe second but would take pretty much everything they have to offer.

I realize the tempurature has dropped a bit the past couple of weeks, but this sounds like a winter thread.

KTM does make some interesting looking machines. Don't particularly care for their dirt bikes, but I don't like any of them from anyone. However, the SuperDuke and the RC8 are shexxxy....

Hard to say honestly. All of them make something i like, but they all make something I wouldn't keep if it was given to me.

The RC8 is a FUN bike. I would love to have one as a track bike.

The superduke may be the best all around/commuter bike I have ever ridden.
