I am an R1 lover and it is my favorite liter sport bike. If I wanted a 600cc bike the Honda would be good for me as a daily ride/commuter bike and it looks ok to me. The R1 is just the best looking bike out there so there is no comparision to me with the R1 and any other bike.

I think it looks decent. I'd roll on a repsol edition.

I don't now, I have mixed feelings. From some angles it looks okay, but from the side it looks funning.

WTF is that shit!? That is goddamn hideous. That makes the fvcking VFR look good. It's the same thing as before - someone just kicked the front end in hard. At least the Blade's facelift was an improvement.

Very bottom. It should be race legal. Why make the consumer have to buy all of the bodywork

I like it (not the Repsol livery though). Then again, I also like the Kawasaki ZX-6R too. No, I don't like the GSXR-600. That is fugly.
