    Cool...but needs more R's in the title.

    So would a 755 twin be Twins Cup or Supersport in the new MA world? Where is the line? Presumably more that the R7 but less than the Ducati.

    Must be the long-lost RC 61.

    A Honda Hornet with a fairing. Big woop.

    It's still a Honda, and sadly, not a Monkey.

    I know, was mostly joking in this case, but somewhat serious on the overall question longer term, although is seems like bikes in between have the version with bars just head to Hooligans.

    from the article;
    [Although it is not as heavy as the R7's 188kg, if you add it to the Hornet's 190kg and keep it within 200kg, you can take advantage of the 92ps Hornet engine to achieve a power-to-weight ratio of 2.16kg/ps, which is 73ps. It can surpass R7's 2.57kg/ps. It is the reason why you can enjoy driving with a more sporty degree while being within the range that you can handle.
    If the equipment is also handed over from the Hornet, the full color meter/traction control/riding mode/wheelie control/engine brake control and electronic equipment far exceeds the R7. When the editorial department assumed the price when the Hornet was released in Japan based on the UK price, the amazing result was about 824,000 yen. I definitely want to see the amazingly priced super sports CBR750R!]

    Honda has yet to make a viable twin so mark me very doubtful.

    I never said anything about awesome or not awesome. I said viable in a discussion about racing. Even brand new the Hawk wasn't competitive, that's why it has so many exceptions in our rulebook :D

    "Any" viable twin or are we only talking about lightweight classes? The RC51 strikes me as a viable twin pretty much out of the box. For its day that is. Let's not forget the stock bike had a top speed of around 205 mph. Just ask your friendly neighborhood Minnesota LEO.

    Really amazing, 750cc and 72hp. With those numbers it should have at least one more R in name :)
