I'd much rather see the undertail exhaust. I do like the body work though. Are they ever going to make the license plate holder look good?

Don't worry, the Europeans are getting that one...see the word "FireHawk" on the side...any time you see those jacked up decals, it's European and I'm with Icon on this one...I like the exhaust!

Typical squids...always focused on the rear fender...that's probably the cleanest rear they've ever released! ::) :P

- mixed feelings about the exhaust...I really hated the shorty exhausts on the gixxer 600's and R6's but I guess lately I just got used to them.  Hey if it helps in performance then I guess why not

- love the paint job

- who gives a crap about the rear fender.  Lets face it, they'll always be ugly and an eye sore cause they gotta be sold street legal but all that means is that you'll have to shell out just another hundo to clean up the tail

 - and speaking of rears, is it just me or is the rear shorter and smaller than current RR's?  Almost reminds me of the 800's in MotoGP

Yep, I thought the exact same thing.


Look at the hugger, its bigger and not steamline.

oh yea, I didn't even notice that.  It adds to the effect of a smaller rear I think.

I like how the engine has a black casing to go with the black swing arm.  Looks clean.  I also like how the bike didn't lose even more plastic from the 07.  It's actually more covered up that the 03-06 models.  Although I don't like all that plastic right below the tank/seat.  Dunno about the vents in side fairing either.  At least the first one from the front looks a little out of place.

lol here we go again.  Critiquing a bike that a)we're not even going to see in the US and b) prolly will look completely different when it actually does hit in '09.  Can't wait for all the comments when that happens
