It will look much better with an after-market exhaust

I like it, the only thing I'm disappointed is they kept the undertail exhausts.

The yellow scheme (except the flame logos) =

yeah the wife and i thought the same thing, we want to see an R6 type exhaust on it

the yellow is fuggin awesome though but the flames are lame maybe remove them if they are decals

not sure about the little thing on the tail, look at the ligt it goes up then out about an inch or so looks kinda gay...

all in all i give it a 2/5 for looks so far... even with an aftermarket exuast its just as massive, jeezus it looks like they took 08 GSXR1k cans and shoved em up there...

undertail would, additionally, get rid of the monstrous head-shielding around the ducktail... that'd tidy her up a fair bit

Not liking it so far, I think they focused more on performance this time it seems. I wonder how the new changed will fair in real world testing. It will be interesting to see.

they're being awfull hush hush about it.

the big bang isn't gonna make it easy for them to maintain the hp while keeping the dB down tho. altho I guess most of the standard exhausts out there aren't really tuned anyways, maybe it won't be so bad.

Totally agree with you Gustav, why can't they just make a replica of the M1, the bloody thing would sell like hotcakes

I Like it and see only the exhaust and over all tail needing a little work IMO.
A BozBrothaz Moria exhaust (spelling??) , it's a short MotoGP style kit . would be the catsa$$ on this model.
