 Split Personalities In The Middleweight Class   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Honda has been, up until now, of the mind that their motorcycle products must first be superior in function on the street for the road riding customer, and would be made competitive for the track afterward.
The emergence of the 600RR shows that this mindset is being set aside - at least in the middleweight class - perhaps because now being competitive in the supersport racing class means developing a bike that is too focused (for Honda) for the everyday street rider.
Now that Honda has joined the two-bike club in the middleweight class, and Kawasaki is "cheating" with a few more cubic centimeters, could it be much of a stretch to speculate that a new "street" middleweight class, with comfortable ergonomics and more engine displacement is in the making?
