wouldn't work..



just rip the fairing offa a bike and by aftermarket fairing and a top clamp with risers.



the reason they add torq is for stop start riding and lower speed roll ons.. like fer the city.



and trust me.. i've had the zrx deep in the triple digits for more than a few minutes.. and.. well.. i'd rather stand inna hail storm than do it all the time.. the wind blast is too much.



nakeds are tuned for their intended purpose.. punking sportbikes in the city, and i'd have it no other way.



(imho of course)

Yup, I like it (except maybe for the orange seat). The RC8 Venom (naked) looks interesting too. Although, I think it's still stuck in its comic book concept stage. I've liked the RC8 since I saw it. Yes, angular, but different in a strange sort of way.

Oh, forgot to mention that the SuperDuke looks A LOT like a Buell XB Lightning. Funny how so many have dismissed Buell yet Eric's little company seem to be becoming quite influential in the motorcycle world.

It's good to see the Vincent Black Shadow make a return, if only through the eyes and manufacturing of Yamaha.
