Save at least for cost of headlight protectors and damper since there's no need of them.

So much more gorgeous than the ugly 09 R1 ... and probably more powerful too! I just gave up on Japanese designers.

Cheap, cheap ... only about $40K ... still much much cheaper than your standard Honda Civic. :cheeky:

 

I'll gladly give up a car for the $55K, almost 220 bhp RSV4 factory bike. :cheeky:

 

$40k ? cheap ? lolz , maybe to u ba .

Confirm price will drop like when Honda began selling their different looking newer generation CBR600's and 1000s.

 

No choice but to get used to it :-/

u comparing tis to CBR 08 1K? o_O

well, i hope like wat u say the price will drop.

mm-hmm...yep.

 

Put "looks" with Supply & Demand.

There are people who don't go to track but buy sportbikes; how they dress up their bike reflects their character...

 

I'd give it one thumb up for the innovative features though, such as its offsetted crank positions, amongst many others not listed here.

Thanks for the link about the Aprilia, however I can't read the whole article. It's too damn small on my notebook screen.

 

But I wonder about their claim. To my knowledge, the 08 CBR1K weights 168kg dry and 199kg all fuelled (correct me if i'm wrong). That makes the weight difference between the Aprilia and the Honda only 9kg. It's really good, but it's not 25kg as they claim!!

 

I'm curious to know how they can explain that. Guess I'll have to get that MCN mag to find out...

Where to find MCN magazine ar?

 

The previous bookshop at Parkway has MCN, but now the new Borders don't.

 

Saw the new 09 Suzuki 1K? Its 203 kg wet. So, RSV is lightest! But it'll make ur wallet lightest as well ... oops!
