The pipe needs changed for sure its hard to find a custom pipe for this year....and i would llike to see red..white..and black paint on the bike it looks real race like....maybe a better headlight on it also at least a brighter one anyways....rather than that this bike is running good i sold mine hopeing to get the new 09 sometime soon....so i await.........
Wait...you had an 08, then sold it, all in hopes that Honda will make the 09 better?
I doubt very seriously that Honda will make enough changes to the bike that selling a brand new 08 would make any sense.
As for finding a pipe, I guess its just personal preference but I've seen at least 4 different pipes that I wouldnt mind having, once I feel like the bike needs more power. As far as that goes, I plan on keeping my exhaust stock for a while, but I do plan on a PCIII
and IM to get my top end back.
As for the headlight I really dont see an issue here, I ride with my high beams on all the time, which is more than enough light for me to ride at night or day with
I would like some angel eye lenses with a stock bike, all the aftermarket kits are pretty cheaply made.
Ah, the ever lasting battle for paint schemes that everyone will love. I tried to get the all black, but they ran out of them, so I got my next best choice in the Red and Silver, pics cant do this color scheme justice, in person this scheme is gorgeous. But once again for Honda to make everyone happy they will need to have about 100 different colors, and then another 20 race replicas. If the colors dont float your boat but you really want the bike for what it can do, save up for a custom paint job, like the guy who got his Repsol Scheme done professionally. If they bring the white and black to the states, I will gladly not care, since everyone and their grandmother will be on one, and then my bike will be the rarer color. So no matter what colors they add, whatever color we dont get in one region will be wanted in another, it the nature of the beast.
On that note, long live the Blade in whatever iterations Honda dreams up
