I really like the look. I love the pipes. I just think that they should have done more than just pipes and paint on a standard GSX-R 1000. If they added a full engine kit, Ohlins suspension, and some lightweight bits it would be really cool. Make it something truly special. Something like the equivalent of a Ducati 1098R, take the standard bike, add 20HP, cut some weight and add trick suspension bits. Oh well, I guess that stuff is easy enough to add later.

They might actually be waiting for someone like yourself to do it?

Manufacturers are strange in a way... there is always room for a little improvement.

oh ya add ohlins suspension and marchesini rims

jack up the price on that bike from 11, 500
to 16,500. make it an even 16,999.

special edition GSXR price

n sad thing
that bike will lose value quick
and the ducati will hold on to it.

honda should put akrapovic or arrow on next repsol and hrc edition. that way it would be more different then regular blade's not only by color scheme.
