Damn man I wish it were that way now. 600s are a dying breed and it's just getting worse. Especially with the discontinuation of the RR.

You can basically blame the ignorance of humanity for it. People are too stupid to make a rational choice and buy something reasonable to learn on like a 250 or 300. They all want to be on a 1000 because they care more about looking cool than actually riding and enjoying it for what it is.

Just look at all the beat up wadded up liter bikes on Craigslist. Idiots.

I can attest to many pages of active topics. I'm curious about your comment on the death of the RR? Apparently I have some learning to do. Time to go scour the interwebz.

Yeah Honda is discontinuing the 600rr in 2017 due to the new EU emissions regulations. And the costs it would take to get up to those new regs when the 600rr sells terribly.

Stop speculating based on a couple people posting internet ramblings. Honda has said no such thing about the 600.

Ok we'll revisit this thread in a few months and see. It's not a couple of internet ramblings. It's literally everywhere dude. Research a little, will ya

People just don't buy new 600s anymore. Sales of new 600cc sportbikes have been on the decline for years everywhere. The US, the EU...

Man I check it everyday multiple times a day. But I wish it was more active. I wish I was here back in like 08 or so. I joined two years ago almost exactly but I've been most active in the last 5 months or so. Ive gotten tons of invaluable information on this site. I couldn't even begin to think of the many times I've been helped here. It may be slow compared to what it was but it's still the helpful online community I've ever been apart of in my life.

Is their any motorcycle forum that's not? We have a local one called Bama Rides and I rode thousands of miles with those guys 3 years ago. Nothing in there but crickets these days.

A friend of mine had a theory the other day and I think he's on to something. For several years the motorcycle community was very active, and bikes were being sold at higher rates. Gas was pretty expensive and cars got worse gas mileage. Bikes were cheaper to buy and cheaper to operate. Now, thanks to pressure from the muthafuckin gubament you can buy a new car for $12k that gets 35+ MPGs. Now for me, riding a bike brings a joy like none other, and the efficiency of my Stallion is merely a fortunate bi-product. I'm afraid for many, a motorcycle is dwindling source of money saving. That was the thought he put into my head. It may not be legit, statistically correct, or even correct for that matter, but it sounded good.

I used to be quite active, however have slowly died off recently. It is an amazing forum with a plethora of information. I've been here for just over two years.

We have aussiestreetbikes.com which always seems to have something being posted.

Research involves creditable facts, not speculation posted by internet blogs and industry guessing. Everyone is selling less 600cc bikes these days, doesn't mean Honda will dump them forever.
As for the lack of posts, bike aren't changing every 4yrs to keep everything fresh and exciting, plus they sell about 10% of what they used to back in the day like '06-07, so there are less people looking for answers. Same reason used bike prices are so high compared to back then, much less stock out there sitting around to drive prices down.

People who participate in the 600 vs 1000cc debate for street bikes should check out MotoGP vs Moto2 times.

Ok fair enough. But I don't think we'll see a 600 from Honda that meets the new regs next year. Maybe in a few years.

This is highly interesting to me. But I couldn't really find anything with a search. MotoGP info is hard to find regardless because of how hard they police info on the net. Or at least youtube haha.

I did find an interesting piece on how WSBK times were pretty much identical to MotoGP times at Laguna Seca last year. But Laguna is a very tight track where the advantages of MotoGP bikes aren't as prominent as their other venues. The differences are quite a bit more at places like Mugello or Catalunya.

It is hard to find content. I don't do cable or satellite TV so I spend my dollars on Videopass. They let you watch GP, moto2, and moto3. Very interesting. I'd also like WSBK but that's a separate subscription.

The thought just came to mind so I looked up pole sitter times for both divisions from Qatar. Both times were within 5ish seconds of each other. That's interesting to me. I know they aren't factory bikes but still 600cc and 1000cc. Those extra 400cc are more of a hindrance to the vast majority of run of the mill riders. People who can't control that extra power.

I'm also on a Honda Fit forum; that forum has much less activity as well. What I think, is when a thing is new, there is a lot of excitement around it, and thus a lot of passion. There are more Honda Fits in America now than ever, so how is activity down? I think it can be explained simply, that the thing is question is no longer unique, new, or exciting, so enthusiasts who are most likely to learn, experiment and post no longer do so. You still get people who join (look how active our New Member section is) but they are generally here to find or learn something rather than contribute (because most everything has already been discovered or explained).

If Honda did something wacky like partner with Kalex and make the next 600RR a weirdo street legal Moto2 bike at a hot price point, I think you'd see a lot of new owners and renewed activity. But as the 600RR is no longer 'new', it should just taper off. Not anyone's fault, it's just the nature of things. Personally I think I'll ride my 600RR on the track until it explodes, then take a look at liter bikes for a change of pace.
