since, some bikes are clearly here in country, hope i get see them/one on display out to indy... yam's marketing department timed this debut well. i'm thinkin my money's on the flat black. flat black is GANGSTAH...!!!

deep down, the motorcycle industry has a problem we dont talk about at parties...

Maybe it's short like the ZX10 went short: the catalytic converted melts bodywork.

How much is the fish?

I could just imagine the jokes about larger riders (you know; the people larger than Duc748?) riding this bike with the eyes bugg'n out like it's overloaded.

You know; the FZ6R looks like it got a better makover than the R1... But like it stole from Suzuki's styling books.

That's what happens when you fall in love with a particular model year...you nitpick the follow-ups. I don't really dig the changes but we'll see how it pans out in person.

Hell, Rossi claims the bike is fantastic so it can't be that bad.

Yes well Rossi used to race Apecars to so take anything he says with a shot of espresso
