Honda’s getting a little naked

ThePaceFINAL-300x116

Recorded – 7/13/2014

The guys discuss Honda’s filling-up lineup of vehicles at every size and price point, Suzuki finally upping their naked bike offerings by announcing a GSR1000, EBR’s SX bike… that’s a LOT of torque. The Yamaha FZ07 – is it worth it? And hey, if Harley-Davidson can’t electrify you, who can?

The E2E Rally is over and the tallying is all done. We announce the winners in this week’s show, and once again, a huge thank you to all the participants, and congratulations to our winners. In the news we discuss everything from new little scooters and small bore bikes, to new big behemoth power cruisers. Sena tells us all about their new offerings and Erik Buell Racing sets pricing on the street version of the 1190… and it’s pretty darned welcome news. Is Suzuki gonna give us a turbo mid-sized street bike? Well, there’s a concept and it seems to be met with praise on all fronts. So, if the court of public opinion matters, I’d say it’s a lock. Stay tuned…

Also, we have lots of feedback stored up for next week.

Rally Results:

  • First place – Entrant #43, Jack Starcher with 2020 points.

  • Second place – Entrant #179, Sandi Roush with 1906 points.

  • Third place – Entrant #69, Dan D’Assis with 1578 points.

Episode 126: Appropriately Grinning

Episode 126 – Appropriately Grinning
September 23, 2012


This week we speculate and ponder the existence of the as yet non-existent existence of Honda’s non-existent V4 sport bike. It doesn’t exist. Yet. Will it? We don’t know, but it sounds like the non-existent bike may exist some day. Whew. That went round the horn a bit. KTM gives us a new big Adventure bike and it’s powered by the RC8 mill. Question is, did the plob the lump in there, or do some reworking on it?

EBR tosses out some ideas on how better to support dealerships, and let’s slip a little info on the new EBR machines coming out in 2013. You on board? Triumph announces pricing on the new Trophy touring bike and clearly has BMW centered in their crosshairs.

Some brief commentary on the Fischer and CF Moto lower-cost alternative bikes, and does Can Am have something new up their collective sleeves…?

Feedback bonanza! Buell gets cash! Audi needs to learn how to stand on its own two wheels. The Street Single! Yeah… lots of amazing stuff. You can tell by all the exclamation marks. We speculate on things. We guess. We assume. We pontificate, and hey… we advise. But we do all with gusto and verve.

Also, if you have a picture you’d like to see added to The Pace’s website’s front page, email it to feedback@thepacepodcast.com and we’ll make it happen. Our site was hacked and when we rebuilt the site, we didn’t put the graphics back to what we had yet. This is your chance to shine. It’s your time. It’s you! YOU! You could have your pictures featured on The Pace in perpetuity. Or at least for a really long time. You got game? Who cares…? We don’t want your game. That’s silly. Just your pics.
