The KTM does nothing for me: Another Transformers bike.

OTOH, the Honda is pretty cool. Lot's of interesting styling cues. I just have to wonder though where they're going to put the radiator. It seems they forgot it. (The one you see is the oil cooler. See the open water port on the left side?)

I think that KTM is what's called the RC8 Venom. If I remember right it's going to have 160bhp and it will be in some form of racing next year? Moto GP or WSB or something. I stand by my branding of KTM as a tranfer clone with wheels, however, I am glad to see they utilized some other color besides orange. Almost every maker has "threir color," but they offer colors at the same time.
The Honda is ok. I could see some people liking both of them. I do like how the RC8 has straight bars instead of clip ons though.

They could at least sell a bike with that cool headlight fairing.

I totaly agree.

And if I remember correctly, this was a 1999 concept bike. Pretty old concept really. I think it evolved into/from the superhawk. It's a pity they didn't build it, or at least something like it.

i like both of em, but to be honest a single front fork scares me, probably no real reason to do so, but it does.

The KTM will see the light of day, if you do any reading on bike forums other than this one.

Should be interesting, they make nice bikes.
