Yep. Not very pretty. Ugly too. However in defense: lower center of gravity and clearance. Besides, You could always change those pipes.

A few ccs short of a full litre.

I have to disagree, there may actually be benefits but those are not them!!!

The dual pipes would actually mean more weight and less ground clearance esp. on the left...

Changing them would be the only option, AND you'd be up for a few dollars for the dual replacements from Yoshi or similar

Saw a real one yesterday up close and can now say the dual pipes are just for emissions (you should see the ugly as sin cat convertor). Yoshi will have a 4-2-1 shortly after the official release in April 07.......

Also has a wanky 3 position fual map switch on the right bar (wet, med & race)

Am thinking it might be time to upgrade though, little more power and a little less weight couldn't be a bad thing

You go that right GD..

I am sorry but the suzuke looks shite. the rest aint much better either. Whats going on
Just when the CB 6's and R6's were looking good ( even Chums 1000 looked pretty neat) they've gone back to droopy nose darth vader design again.
