I'll bet it will handle awsome. It looks like more weight was transferred forward which will make it feel more stable/planted through corners at high speed. I like the way it looks, but i'm imagining it with race bodywork and different paint and no "pigspotters"!

They only released the new colors for the 600's today. These are directly from the honda website. I like the design in the black paint.

even if it came with 200hp stock its still UGLY to me and would never buy that thing. i never liked honda but the previous rr's did look very good.

they had to switch to the stubby to allow for more room for larger catalysts to comply with the new Euro7 emissions standards. notice the size of the muffler...its all catalyst. there was a post i saw on another forum that shows the exhaust system layout drawings that Honda submitted for a new patent. pretty complicated system.

They probably read this thread and decided to make major revisions. Can't say as she's a show stopper if these pics are true. They made sweet changes to the styling in '07, so either Hyroki is now a crack head or he got fired.

I think it's better looking than any of the previous versions, but hey, all Honda's are ugly and slow to a gixxer owner!
