Re: New Kwak 6R and 6RR

i knew indefinately that all of the big four would go to undertail exhaust and inverted front forks. i was waiting specifically for the cbr 600rr to come with inverted forks. i dont know why i just like the look of inverted forks. so when you think suzuki and yamaha are gonna tack on undertail exhaust. my guess is this year just like kawi did. is the 05 zx10r due to have undertail exhaust...anyone know? just curious

Re: New Kwak 6R and 6RR

Looks like all of the big 4 Japanese makers are taking from one another along with their own advances. Honda needs to turn it up a notch and use some more of their R&D and money to their advantage!!

I'm saying 06 so as to stay with the 2 year plan. you gotta do a lot of redesigning to do an undertail exhaust but perhaps they already did most of that work and just stuck the sidepipe on there for now as they rushed the bike anyway.

those 2 bikes look sweet as hell, I can't wait to see some performance numbers. the way the power of 600s and 1000s have been going up so high I think that since Kawk is the only one really making a 500 sportbike (although the Suzuki GS500 is looking like a real baby gixxer now) they gotta do a major redesign of the EX500. they gotta make it into a ZX5R and have basically the performance of the "old' 600s of just a couple years ago. its almost like the 600s are getting too much power to be good beginner bikes because new rider skill isn't any better than it was before. And Suzuki is the only one doing a 750 now and I think its perfect in terms of where it fits in powerwise with these new 600 and 1000s, its way too big a gap between the 6 and 10 now and I think the roughly 130hp of the 04 gsxr750 and the 929/954 is perfect for in between.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: New Kwak 6R and 6RR

hondas got the styling part down, just need some r&d in the motor department. reliablility makes up for it i suppose, but id like to see the 1000rr weigh 25 lbs lighter with some more hp's baby...

then i will make me purchase

Re: New Kwak 6R and 6RR

Wonder how much weight the Kawi's will gain with the underseat pipes?

They're sticking with the 'hated' LCD tach?
