I saw one. Didn't like it, but didn't hate it. I like the idea. Kind of like Vipers, big motor little (sorta) frame.

Somedays I like it and some day's I don't. It's wide, but doesn't feel that heavy to me. I'd love to have one for a couple of hours BEFORE I bought one.

Looks are subjective, but I've read some glowing reviews on it.
Aside from the wind blast above 100 mph and the super wide tank, I hear it's a hoot to ride.
Saw one going down the HOV the other day and did'nt look that bad with a rider on it.

I bet this one would be interesting:

The last one with the turbo scares me...

Seriously; I feel weird getting on anything w little amount of fairings cuz I can see all around the bike; too used to the busa fairings....

But with that much power and exposure to wind, etc; I would feel every mph after 60.... wouldn't give rider an advantage to speed like the busa...

pfft. fairing are over rated. i LOVE the wind. i LOVE the feel of being pushed back on the bike. i dont think i'll ever have a bike with fairings again. ever. i got a fairing set for the track bike.. i'll probably end up selling them, or just holding them until i sell it.
