Default Re: 2005 YAMAHA SUPERSPORTS

An aftermarket fairing would not look as clean . Who needs to go 100 mph in first gear on the street ? Besides why spend all that money to modify an existing motorcycle when the factory could do it ? I have already thought about it , but a $13,000 Yamaha does not sound appealing .

My first car was a '80 RX7. That particular copy was a piece of shiat but when it ran right, whatta load of fun. The intake whoosh through that 4-barrel at 8000 rpm was something else.

can't disagree with that..cept come on..

100 in 1st would be the dog's danglies.



I like riding, not one foot tapdancing to keep my powerband.. so buzzers never appealed to me much.. but I have ridden a few and I can see how some/most people love it.



Gimme muscle bikes.. sexy, powerful, bellowing power. again to each their own..

tho.. they can keep that MT over there..

it's a tad on the homely side. imho

Dogs danglies ? LOL



Are you British by chance ?



Yes it is to each their own . It seemes that the Japanese manufacters are afraid to build a

"naked " bike that even comes close to their top sport bikes . Even though this is what most of us want . It's funny that Aprilia , MV , and others have no problem with it .
