This is how:

Apparently the engine has been in the certification process for a while.

all they have to say is " tuned for torque" and interest fails.

As far as I know the only sportbike turned naked that was not nuetered is the k1200r,and from bmw @ that.. perhaps the big four think people won't buy supersports anymore if a cheaper more hospitable version is availible with all the handling and zip as their torture rack siblings. I don't ride fast and hard enough to justify a supersport, but I still like to terrorize the neighbors once in a while, short of the 12 horseman of the apocalypse a full power naked is just the thing.

it all depends what your cage is, if your car is say, a dodge viper, all of a suddon tires are cheap and fuel economy is more like a four hundred percent gain. My regular car is a civic and I figure my speed triple breaks even, all things including insurance factored in.

According to this epa link it's a liquid cooled engine.

Way down around page 8 it says this engine uses "SAL Reed Valve" technology. (?) I thought reed valves were for 2-strokes only. Anyone here want to guess what that means?

If you own a VW Golf diesel you get 50mpg and the average m/c becomes more expensive.



M/C tyres - $125 ea.- 10K / VW $500 per set - 40K

M/C gas cost = $2500 - VW = $2000



That shyt eating grin I get when I'm on the bike = priceless.

Don't forget the cost of having the Exploder towed when you actually try to take the POS off road and it inevitably gets stuck.

Sadly a lot of those pictures are *Ahem* computer generated. Note, in the Datona 680RR pic, the presence ZX-6R wheels, brakes, forks, etc.



Same goes for the ZZR1300.



Cant wait to see what they really look like, though.

It also says the fuel tank is made of Nylon 6, Harley going to a new fangled material, scary.
