    And this would be on my short list for a next bike ... the Thruxton

    Call me old school but I just love the wire wheels and lack of plastic appendages. I am also a big fan of Bikini fairings.
    I think the Kawa would look and probably sound better with a similar reverse megaphone to the Thruxton.

    And STONE has to be one of the all time great Bike movies :)

    I have always liked the 'W' series. Had a look at the 250 here but it is quite expensive. I would go for alloy rims on that and just change the color. Brown seats are hideous. Thruxton looks pretty damn fine just like it is.

    Another Kawasaki and the W in green, sans hideous brown seat.

    Might be more interested in it if it wasn't painted 'turd brown'. Maybe could put some orange stripes on it like a 'jaffa' 900.

    These two look like kids transformer bikes (but good to see Mahindra using the Peugeot name again).

    This one too.

    I do like the upswept pipe on the top one.. but I also like the air cooled motors.. very "old school" like me... or is that just Old... I am not so sure these days.

    I love the bevel drive OHC on the Kawasaki W.
