800cc Sportbike

Posted 10-11-2008 at 10:22 AM by beansbaxter

If the manufacturers made an 800cc sportbike, would you ride it?

Imagine...

a Honda CBR 800RR
a Kawasaki ZX-8R
a Suzuki GSXR 800
a Yamaha YZF-R8

Thoughts?

    Wouldn't that be similar to say a GSXR750 or a ZX-7R... however it would be nice if Honda made a midsize bike like that.... besides just the VFR800

    I say just bring back the 750's, and change the VFR 800 back to a 750 and lighten up/redesign the frame for better handling.

    I would love to see an 800cc. I love my R6 but something that would be cheaper in insurance than an R1 that is faster than my R6 would be fun. I am a Yamaha fan, not to say I would never ride another brand, just not voluntary

    800cc's would be okay I guess, but how much of an edge is gained with the extra cc's over the 750? It can't be that much.

    Obviously not a liquid 8, but....

    I'd ride one for sure! I'd ride any bike that I'm given the chance! I tell you R8 sounds better than R1 and R6!
