Just a quickie here.

I saw a yellow one of these yesterday on 517 in Dickinson. WOW!!! WHAT AN AWESOME LOOKING BIKE!!!

I've stated many times that I'm not a fan of IL4 liter bikes due to their ridiculous power but that bike looks good enough to give me second thoughts.

If you are on here, you have a nice looking and sounding bike.

Got the totally opposite reaction out of me when I saw the yellow one sitting in B.L. Honda..

Reminded me of Charlie Brown or those litte playskool people that most people had as a child... Ugliest bike in the last 10yrs!!

I persoanlly think the bike looks hideous. I think the RR's looked better from years 2003-2007. I wonder if anyone feels the same way?

But again, I am not a fan of the new look of the RR this year. I will say the new 2008 R6/R1...wow...fantastic looking bike.

everyone refers to the way the front end looks and how they hate it. To me it looks alot like an evolution of the rc51 front end. especially the side profile. It has grown on me but I am still not a fan of I-4 liter bikes. go figure huh! lol I think aprillias new v-4 will rule all.

Before I saw the bike in person I HATED the front and thought the bike was hideous. Seeing one on the street shocked me. It looks really good in person.

As far as controlling the power of IL4 supersport literbike and driving one on the street goes..... I'd rather be good at using the power of a 600. It's all I need to go fast enough at the track, why would I need more on the street?

Jeff Grant had one at TWS (Texas World Speedway) a month or so ago- I didn't like the looks of the bike either until I saw it in person. In person, the bike looks really good!

Don't know what it is about the pics that make the stock bike look funny, in person, it looked nice.

well in my case I do almost 100% freeway riding and its very nice to have the extra power to pass people vs the terrible acceleration of my f4i on the freeway going 70+

not to mention all the wicked sick track days this bike is going to do with me
