It looks like it has close to the same body work as MM93's bike. It's also a MotoGP bike where performance reigns supreme not looks. If they could make it ugly as sin but go faster and have better aero you bet they would do it.

It'a a limited edition race replica street bike based on, if anything the RCV1000R. Make it pretty, like the Repsol, like the NH Drive bike.....

It does, but I loved the underseat exhausts

Getting back to the Honda, can you imagine if they'd launched it in San Carlo Gresini livery???? maybe a "Simo" special.....

I think I could possibly afford the swingarm. How much? 10K?

Have to have a V4 bike one of these days.

Close to the exact same fairings as the motogp bike, last I checked Marc didn't win the championship twice in a row on a 1970 bike.
