I don't like lame names either,
Personally and I may be a little biased, but I've always liked BMW's way of naming something, first letter is the Engine type, numbers is the CC and the final letter is what it is. Adv, sport, roadster etc etc.
Triumphs name Bonneville is also cool and a legendary name at that,
All my favorite Japanese bikes have had mostly letter and numbers with a name sometimes. Z900, Z1R, VF1000F Interceptor (really cool name for a bike)
You want to talk lame names .Harley calling their upcoming streetfighter the bronx had me scratching my head, figured they go for a XR900 Or something'.
