I like the colors, but I guess I'm just not a sticker fan. After all, it's plastered w/ Michelin stickers and comes w/ Pirellis or Bridgestones. I guess that's the inherent flaw w/ replica bikes.

And no pictures of the Benelli Tornado?
I'm dissapointed in you.

I don't like the Repsol Replica or most replicas... They look too much like a sad poser bike. (Esp. w/ the above comments on tires; or if you every changed from a DID chain to a RK... etc... It's like a BMW ///M sticker on a BMW 318)
I did, however, like the Telefonica Movistar GSXR600 replica - they did that one very well.

Re: 2005 cbr1000RR pix from toronto bike show

I agree, it's a stunning bike, but I'd peel everything off the lowers and the swingarm, and nix the HRC decals as well.

I got more pix of 05s. I did miss the Tornado however. UGH! So ashamed of myself.

I'll post the other pix later on when I get a chance to sort it all out.

I think the Repsol bike looks stunning. I would not actively place stickers on my bike, but I'm telling guys, it satisfies the poser in me. I already have a Repsol jacket. (hangs head in shame).

Re: 2005 cbr1000RR pix from toronto bike show

I too saw the bike at the Int. Dallas moto convention. I wasn't a huge fan of the replica edition untill I saw it in person. Very sharp looking up close.

Re: 2005 cbr1000RR pix from toronto bike show

Those are nice pictures! I'm looking forward to see the bike in person myself.

Are there any differences between the 04 and the 05 1000rr models regarding the use of clear coat paint or other finish related things? The 04 I test rode early this summer had poor finish.. Other that that, I loved it!

Re: 2005 cbr1000RR pix from toronto bike show

About the only other thing that bugs me is that after soooo many years, Honda still uses the ugliest turn signals ever. Come on, they were on my 98 F3, and I'm sure that wasn't the 1st year they used them.

I'd like to know when those turn signals started showing up? For sure F3, F4 and 929 had them.

Re: 2005 cbr1000RR pix from toronto bike show

Real problem with replica bikes is that by the time they are available for sale, the next year the rider leaves or there is a new sponsor!

Re: 2005 cbr1000RR pix from toronto bike show

Why do you guys care so much? 90% of people that see you riding on a day to day basis have no idea about such details you're worrying over. It's a sweet looking bike. Get it for the power and the great looks, the details are so miniscule.

Re: 2005 cbr1000RR pix from toronto bike show

skEwb: I agree.

Am sorely tempted to buy it now that I've seen it in person. But I think I will get a track bike instead for next yr.

Re: 2005 cbr1000RR pix from toronto bike show

As far as the stickers go folks, I just bought one and the stickers (with the exception of the HRC ones) do not come on the bike but are actually given to you separately. You decide whether or not to place them. I'm talking about the gas jeans ones for the upper and all those ones along the lower. I for one am not putting them on. Oh and the bike looks ABSOLUTELY AWESOME IN BRIGHT DIRECT SUNLIGHT with all the metal flake in the super dark blue paint, it really is spectacular.
