Wow that video was annoying.  Nothing like choppy, dark snippets that show you nothing to get your blood pumping.  But it had distorted guitar so it must have been cool.  Grrr.  Marketing tools.  Compared to the XT video, that was just...annoying.  Even the beginning of the lightening video was better than that.  Guess they know it's ugly and don't want to give anyone a chance to actually see it.   Bigsmile

The current STN rating tally is 4.88 for the CR, so it's not impressing that many.  Personally I still haven't seen one in person, and I'm losing interest.

 I am interested, but I am also a deal seeker, so If I wait eventually the price will come down, nothing like paying list for something that loses 30% in less than a year. The 08 1125R's are already being discounted to $9600.00

the Engine is made by a Canadian company in Austria. Lol




Rotax is Canadian?  Then why aren't they making them in Canadia?....

Not actually correct.  It was a buy out by BRP not a merger.  BRP is a wholly owned and operated by a Canadian Family once again.

It is a cafe bike, so not exactly in the middle of the sport-touring demographic.  

Its growing on me as well, but I'm really not in the market for that type of bike. To narrowly focused for the money for me. If I want a commuter cafe-bike or track day machine, I'd buy a used SV-650 for any a few grand.  

I'm waiting for the 1125ST, preferably in a Ulysses-esque form.

Update:
Got to see and sit on an 1125CR this weekend (Albany,GA HD:Buell has a Red CR but you can't get '06 brake pads?!?). Its very cool looking in person. But its a tiny little weapon. It made the Lightning parked next to it look huge.
