I'd take one...they look pretty sweet!!

that right side chain drive is interesting..wonder they decided to use, vs. why nobody else seems too.

Thank you Twisty for pointing out the obvious. :lol:

What I would like somebody to do is explain why the reverse on the disc and drive chain???

I just said that in another thread.... but I'll clarify a bit.

At the time, I wasn't confident in the FI out there. The only bike that had a desent FI was the GSXR and I just didn't want one of those! Carbs are old and trusty! I have no regrets on it...

Very cool bike. :) I really like the MZ1000. Of course, I'm partial to the MZ1000N, naked edition though.

The suspension on that bike is supposedly awesome, right from the factory... It's got an AWESOME low speed turning radius and thus great low speed manuverability. Handling on the track is supposed to be superb, as well. One review I read of it said it soaked up imperfections in the track while providing excellent feedback better than any of the big 4's liter bikes. This was a review from last year... I'd own one..

It is just a marketing ploy until I have ridden one for my self. I don't trust reviews or mags unless it is from Performance Bikes.
