I love the bikes with the exception of the front brake. It has been proven to be not any better than conventional brakes. I certainly hope they have the charging system issue of burned up stators and rectifiers fixed. 185 horsepowers and 101 torques but 419 pounds, it's a little heavy. I'm sure it could loose some weight in the exhaust. I want one!

When did 419lbs become heavy? My cbr was 430 and it was a 600. 419lb with 185 horses ought to be a flyer

And that is without fuel

When you compare to the older GSXR1000's it is heavy. They were in the 370's

My TLR stock is 434 dry, it's a pig. It's lighter now maybe under 410.

Seems like a decent deal. If you have to have an EBR.
