Why not just buy the regular one then go have it painted for less.

I think special edition is a joke. Why can't they just say you can buy the cooler color bike because the motor and everything else is exactly the same as that plain black one.

I guess my question is, "why should someone spend the extra money to buy special edition other than for the color of the plastics?"

I have a friend who bought a special edition zx10 and it has no mods but he says his zx10 will smoke any other zx10. So I laughed and went and got my all stock zx10 out of storage and shut him up. There was no point trying to explain it to him because he was so caught up on the word "Special edition".
Having owned a "Repsol" 1000rr, "LE" R1, "50th Anniversary Ed" R6 - I will say they are worth the extra $$, whether suspension or no suspension.

Now the "Raven Ed" R6 or "Graffiti Ed" 600rr or "Limited Ed" zx6r - all those I don't think should be extra $$..
