Neat! But that -end looks like it's been dining at jack-in-the-box too regular! I don't like underseat exhausts.

Kawi and Suk are a close 1st followed by Honda then Yami for liter bikes.
Just wait for the 2009 liter bike shootouts. And, I believe Honda stole the crown from Suzuki this year in all of the tests. I can't remember that last time the Kawi ever won the test? It has ran second a lot of times.

Yamaha will regain it once again. Unless you are just talking about how pretty it is? I don't think it looks that good, but I already have my name on the first one that Texas Yamaha is going to receive.
