Production of the twin cylinder Due 756 at 100 hp could start straight away, or in 2010. It should compete in the medium ranks of the naked sector, with bikes such as the Honda Hornet or Kawasaki Z750. While the power is definitely competitive, we expect the price should be as well.

Ari Henning from motorcyclistonline.com recently rode the 2009 Kawasaki KLX250SF.
Here is what he has to say about the bike:
-"At $5299 the KLX250SF isn't cheap, but that's not a bad price for a bike that's more fun that a ZX-10R-on the street anyway"
-"Specifically tuned to deliver maximum on-road fun."
-"gear-driven counterbalancer does a commendable job of stifling vibrations. With 10,500 revs available on the cool, blue-backlit, bar-graph tach, the little 250 can sprint up to 90 mph"

Then it’s time you sampled the CBR600F4i. With its fuel injection, aluminum chassis, fully adjustable suspension, superb brakes and one-piece seat, it’s the best all-around 600 out there.
A really great bike! It’s not just for beginners. I recommend it for all beginners and expert riders as well.
I love this bike. It’s so comfortable (the seat isn’t that high so a smaller rider can fit on the bike), handles like a charm and the performance is there if you feel the need to push it.
If you’re looking for a bike to get compliments on it wherever you go, this bike will do the job. Reliabilty, quality, and performance in one package. It has smooth riding, good steering control, easy clutch, and let’s not even talk about the throttle. It’s not intimidating at all, and made me feel at ease about riding at high speeds.
I would definitely recommend this bike to anyone looking. Good power and great ergos. Very reasonable cost.
