Honestly, I think if you were to buy a stock R1 and then bring it up to the same performance lever with aftermarket parts it would be cheaper... just guessing...

R1

I just saw there offering the same paint scheme in the stock R1 also. I didnt think they where going to do that. I like that old classic scheme. maybe cause I'm old but just like that color scheme. maybe I will just go for the non LE version.

I can't possibly get one, the wife would keep catching me out in the garage having sex with it...

I don't like the looks of that fairing piece which extends back & downward...Like the ZX14, the bike just looks overstyled....looks like the theme for exhaust this year is 'minimalist'. Better than the underseat pipes, though...

True that, the motoGP style exausts are better than the underseat. But they do take some getting used to, I think i'd still take the regular pipes though.

Guess I should change my name, not a poser anymore.
