I really like the look, but only a single front rotor?!? Gimme a freakin' brake (no pun...well, maybe)!!

I like retro and all, but some modern touches are exceptable...like efficient brakes. Sad, because I'll never pay good money for it, just because of this. :down

Like I've said before, if they really wanted to go retro, they should have thrown in drum brakes. :rolleyes

There are people taking one rotor off of their late model race bikes.

In all honesty, I mistakenly thought that the Bonnie has dual front disc, but it looks as if the whole line are in the dark ages.

Again this is supposed to be a fun bike, plus cool to boot...Man I love the ole cafe racers..:D ! And I bet that the stopping power on that bike is fine for fun, sane riding, it's not a race bike. Hell it's an air cooled engine. Again I give it a big :thumb for making a bike that is different!!!
