I don't think I've heard one bad review from the may journalists and ex-racers that haven't ridden it.

love the looks.....except the tail section, to much like the newer r6's, doesn't match up or flow with the rest of the bike...

It's rather unfortunate that there's nothing bad to say...

Well they replaced/ditched most of the things that I did'nt like about the '08's like the exhaust, mud flap/plate holder, 3 spoke wheels soo I'm not surprised how good it looks.
Looks don't win races though. Can't wait to see how it stacks up against the Zuk.

Look at the rear... no number plate!

It's really odd to see it on the side fairing...

AZ Slide is correct. The FX Bikes ride the 200 not Superbikes.
I don't know why the tanks would be any different from race to race.

Mass centralization.
The nose piece was designed to create turbulence. This happened in an attempt to ease high speed turn-in.

Those are painted aluminum endurance tanks. I don't know why they were on there, I just know that's what they were.

in superbike thats one of the things that can be changed. alot of teams switch to aluminum alloy tanks to lower the center of gravity. if your ever up close you can see the rockstar makita yoshimura suzuki superbikes use them too. aaron yates michael jordan motorsports suzuki is fitted with a develpmental tank made by yoshimura, he had it for probobly the second half of last seoson, its unpainted so you can see its not stock
