2005

So what to buy for 2005, I was trying to persude my self to get a 600 but bollox to that
Being a bit of a Gixxer junky Im leaning this way but cant say its the most visually appealing design I have seen for a while. Need to use your immagination, fitting a race pipe and bodywork will lose all of the ugly bits

Go for it Tug

Even though the swingarm looks like it's held together with chewing gum rather than weld. Said to weigh 166 kg dry - I want one too!

Here's another view.

Gings the other view is worse

I made a mistake thinking that you Singaporean wombles could work out how it would look after a bit of junk was removed so by the miracle of modern science, viola!

With the pipe like that, you'll be almost as loud as the scooters you'll be elbowing with in downtown Shangai

You should leave the photoshopping to the pro's I think:

Question Your considered opinion?

Like to know why, as an engineer yourself, you don't like them.

Obviously can't be because they are quick, planted, reliable, well-priced blah-blah-blah. Or is it just styling, or popularity?

Simple answer:
It's not a Yamaha.

Blind brand loyalty is a sure fire way to end out with a crap purchase at some time or other

The 'removed ugly bits' pic is farkin hot .... but then ... you gotta source yourself a pipe that has the muffler in the belly pan .... not easy big fella ....

I think it's time you bought yourself a Yammie .... Kwaka ZX-10 ... or if you have really big BIG balls .... an 05 999R..oww..
