Glad they kept turn signals on the fairings instead of the turn signals like the 10. Like that they kept 07-08 6r gauge cluster as well. Looks bad !

I think it needs more curves and less lines in the fairings. Check out that massive swingarm, also the frame looks identical to the 07's. I still prefer it's predecessor, that's why i have one

They also have a SE Monter Energy bike. I think it could have used a bit more work personally. . . .

08 ME 6R
agreed might as well just buy a black bike and slap a monster sticker on it and a ghey green seat.

It's a lot like a cross between the 07-08 6R and the 08 10R. It still looks mostly the same though. . . much better than my cluster in every way.

The swingarm uses many of the same pieces as the 10R does. You're the first one I've heard to not like the swingarm.
I agree about the fairings though. I like the overall shape of the bike, but the midfairings look kinda cookie-cutterish.

BTW, everyone on Kawiforums hated the 07-08 when pictures first surfaced. Now look at it.

I like the way it looks. Don't know why so many haters. Now, I won't be buying one, but if somebody were to just give me one- I would ride it.

, couldn't barely tell it apart from the 10R. Its aiiiight. I'm not into the new bikes, I've only gone down in the year models I've owned

, there's a few guys that sold their 04-05 10R to get an 08 and they want their old one back

But look how high that rear sits? Without the undertail exhaust I could lower it six inches!

Yeah, I dont care for the Monster, but I do like the limited edition 10R for 09. There is just enough green to make a "kaw" statement without overkill.
