Looks great, except for the huge cans and big 1-piece rearset/passengerset thing... looks like those pieces of chit on the ninja 650R... Some black aftermarket rearsets and nice termignoni carbon cans on there would look friggin' sweet.

Man... the look of those things in black with a red tubular frame for some reason just strikes my fancy.

I guess I could settle for the S4R Testastretta with the red tubular frame and charcoal grey paint.... it's not black... but hey.

That thing just barely makes more power than mine.

It is lighter though, and has better brakes...

eh- nope- wouldn't trade my Ninja for it. And that site is Fxcking SLOW!!

The removable tank panels are an excellent idea, though.

Good concept, great bike, yet too little for to much. Cant stand their prices, some are ok but others... Its like yeah the quality isnt as good but I could buy an SV for ALOT cheaper.

Same deal with the BMW F800ST (or whatever- screwy names...) you can get a Ninja650R, and an SV650 for the price of one BMW.

Needs at least a bikini fairing option before I'm hooked. I need a little wind protection for the highway.
