I am not sure about the similarities between the two but I do think the 08 ZX10 is bad looking....The 05-06 1000RR honda in all black is still my favorite looking bike, followed by the 04-06 R1 in all black. Lastly my 01 Blk/silv Giggy 1k...

I saw the '08 ZX10 at the show.
I'd had high hopes based on pictures I'd seen, but to be honest, I thought the bike was kind of ugly.

Who knows maybe it'll grow on me.....

I also noticed the clutch was VERY stiff. It was on all three at the show. just a lil heads up.

I think the 08 ZX10 will grow on me though.

Replacing the exhaust will clean up the look quite a bit on the '08 ZX-10R. I still don't like the front turn signals though.

I haven't seen the front of the ZX10 yet, just the side profile, I thought it looked pretty cool I know the 06-07 ZX10s looked HORRIBLE on the front end....I really liked the front on the 04-05s though. I am curious as to what kind of power they will dump out...

The 07 Giggys are making 160-164hp STOCK. I am sure the 08s will be about the same.

Don't know about being fastest, that's up to the rider but it's a great machine on the track.

btw this tread might be deemed stupid and should be moved to off topic discussion who cares if it involves motorcycles or not.

I think the new ZX-10 will still be ugly even without the can. Saw it at the International M/C Show and the front lights look like bug eyes. Did not like the looks at all.
