    Before I bought my Street Triple, I test rode an MT-07. I can't think of a less sporty power delivery. That engine was all about the torque. It would be a major disappointment going from an old R6 to an 'R7'.

    If they have to kill off the R6, then something like the RS660 (or even the new Street Triple) is what they should be aiming to compete against in terms of power and performance.

    First thing I thought is RS660 . I guess it all depends where you want to ride it.

    A Real R7 would come and slap you for even suggesting that name (if it weren't for lack of MIQ spaces), so think yourself lucky.

    Looks like it might be an R7 after all.

    Next years Hayabusa is going to be based on the GSX650 platform and there's a Fireblade based on a Harley because that's how fucked up marketing bullshit is.

    The 600 supersport market is all but dead, manufacturers are just responding to market demands.
