That's ugly as $hit but I'm diggin all the carbon fiber and titanium, I bet it's a blast to ride although it doesn't look like you'd be able to walk after about 50 miles on the thing. I like the looks of the rear stand more then the bike. Like jmejiaa said, it looks like our swing arm.

It just looks like a sportbike that's missing a fairing.

Streetfighters, IMO, should have slightly more upright handlebars, basically no wind protection and a shorter wheelbase.
Agreed, needs full fairings or needs to be more upright. It reminds me of my first bike, left side lower fairing blew of at 100mph so I took the other side off and just road around like that. lol

That stand has got me looking at my swing arm to try and figure out how to turn a used one into a matching rearstand.

It was at Laguna MotoGP this year... and pictures do it absolutely no justice.

If there's going to be a repost that shouldn't hurt anyone's feelings - it's this one ;)

My favorite style of streetfighter. I just about got this instead of the R6.

You'd have been pissed :laugh

Fun in their own right - but nowhere near the same thrill IMO

I'm not a fan. It basically is the Desmo with some fairings removed. What a downer. They lost me at streetfighter.

Luke, you couldn't be more wrong. It's an NCR piece of art... more Ti than I've ever seen in one creation and the carbon is absolutely second-to-none.
