Cool bike's we'll never see

i shamelessly stole the link for this from SMJ b/c i had to share. This is just a little view of what's available "across the pond". most of these we'll never see stateside. what a shame. BTW, check out the 2008 Husky SMR I'm waiting on(we won't get the green version stateside though).

Although I understand some of the commercial reasons behind why we don't get some of the bikes the Europeans do, I'm still disappointed that I'll never ride some of them.

Thanks for the link Joe!

Simply pit, certain models of bikes that sell well over there, don't sell over here.
Witness the demise of the CB919 and 599, overseas known as the Hornet.

And when Europe supports Honda by embracing the "Hornets," they are rewarded w/ kickass models like the new CB1000r...
