Re: 2012 CBR 1000RR Fireblade
Have they listened ????
The back still looks awful so you have got to rip it to bits to fit a tail tidy.
The rear pegs still look a nightmare to remove.
The exhaust still isn't the best and will push an aftermarket purchase.
The rear hugger still protects nothing.
How much oil will this one drink ?
Most riders don't care how the fairing comes apart as they get a dealer to work on the bike ( myself included ).
Would I jump on a new one when they become available..........no way.
Don't get me wrong, I love the blade. It doesn't look different enough from mine to make me want to even consider changing though. I do like the new dash, but I still prefer the original Penguin colour scheme on mine.
I suppose the real question is................how much ?
Sometimes I wish I was a faster rider, but there's no heroes in the graveyard..............
