That is just plain [email protected]#$% ugly all round. For anybody with even half a brain (you don't need much more to ride speedy) that will NEVER compete with S3. No no no no no no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it's a Suzuki NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Get rid of the bodywork and the anime exhaust system and it would possibly have potential. It won't be a contender against the speedy, it's more along the lines of the BMW K1200R. I think whatever weight savings they went through stripping it down were put right back on with that comical exhaust. When will they get it right??? Kawasaki put an oversized exhaust on the z1000. Here's the link for those interested: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/photos/2007models/2007-Kawasaki-Z1000a.jpg
Didn't want to post the pic, it was pretty big. I was talking to the Santa Barbara kawasaki dealership owner and he says that they are going to outfit the floor models with a 2bros pipe because the stock exhaust won't sell any bikes.
It's all these green earth people forcing bike manufacturers to clean up and silence their exhaust act.
At the end of it, we the customers get to pay for all these unloved and unwanted pieces of metal.
