UK Bike Shop
I've been in the UK and went to see if I could find a 2017 bike or two to look at. I found an RS alongside a 2014 EX.

I liked the RS a lot, although in my opinion, both 2017 models would look better with a silver engine.

The bloke in the shop then suggested I go and look at the second-hand bikes over the road. I found a 2017 EX (second hand already) and a 2014 EX.

And, right next to them, a CB1300.

Apologies for the quality of the photos; there was not a lot of room.

Nice, but I agree about the engine.
I'm not a fan of all the blacked out parts we see these days.

RE: UK Bike Shop
Yup, new tank looks nicer IMHO. Seams! Not even. The 1300 is rather ugly to me. I'd take a Kaw Ninja 1400 if I want an engine that big. The RS looks really nice.
