    Looking forward to the shootouts. Nice to see this class of bike getting traction in the U.S.

    I saw that R3, and couldn't help thinking... it's no RC390. With 321cc/42hp vs 373cc/43hp and at wet 169kg vs dry 147kg is a good 10kg in the ktm's favour and i guess some extra torque. Then RWU forks and a sliding caliper vs USD WP and radial doesn't look good for the yamaha. In UK the KTM comes in at £5k, and Yamaha had best get the R3 in well below that if they want it to sell.

    And also, who's still buying a 30hp CBR300 for £4300 or the 300 ninja ABS for £5200 in this sector? Honda and Kawi have some work to do.

    I like the KTM. Most of my friends ride KTM. Given the displacement disadvantage the Kawasaki has in this race i'd say that it did just fine. Oh...yes, it looks like Yamaha will dominate the entry level Sport Bike Division.
