    Nice, I like it and want one too. However, my current bike is only just over two years old.

    It's horrible. Who'd want to be seen riding K-9?

    Probably better in motors...

    I keep teasing myself now the summer is coming again into getting back on 2 wheels! I used to dislike streetfighter style bikes massively a few years ago when I had a sportsbike but they just have something about them that looks mean!

    Just Naked\Unfaired bikes, it's a Honda CB1000R I think.

    Does look nice though, quite an aggressive looking bike.

    Absolutely love it. Went on a ride out with a guy on a orange/bronze one, looked mean! Shame I haven't a chance of getting insured on it, nevermind restricting it.

    Back to looking at ZXR400's for me! :)

    Absolutely love those exhausts. When you see the in the flesh, they're amazing.

    I'm not a fan of the exhausts either, but seeing them in real life, they certainly do back up the agressive appearance of the bike.

    These are very nice bikes, i had one of these up till January this year and i loved it, the only draw back with a naked bike is the lack of wind protection, i have arthritis in my back and neck so i got rid as it was causing me to much pain at anything over 80-90 MPH, i've ridden naked bikes for 29 years and my aging body can no longer handle naked bikes, i now have the new Suzuki GSX1250FA.

    Anyway, about the OEM can, i didn't like it to much so i changed mine for a (G&G GPS) end can and the bike looked amazing, a lot better than standard, see pics below.

    Great choice. Probably one of the best naked bikes available.

    I like them, good looking bikes. Can't help but agree on the pipes, although they're much less awful than some of the trumpets attached to current bikes (GSXR and Z1000 particularly bad offenders).

    great looking naked bike. personally I think the standard pipes look better than those cut off motoGP style ones, I really cant stick those.

    Rear end looks like its taken staight off the new blade, what colour are you getting it in, the silver as per the picture?
