Thank God I could say this bike is ugly in the correct forum.

I kind of like the Shogun Warrior look, it's just those dammed tailpipes. Even 6ft long HD fishtails would be better. Or is that in the pipeline for '09?



Maybe Ksaki's designers are taking the same hallucinogens that BMW's are.

Default MO 2.0 in action?

Wow communication to the readers and a review in the same week. Wow! Possibly there is something to this MO 2.0.



BTW Enjoyed the read Thanks for reviewin something that is not just another cruzer. This is a real motorcycle for the real world and like most standard and naked bikes it works. It does appeal to me style wise, but then again in addition 2 my jap bikes I have BMW,KTM and Buells in my garage So my taste may be off a bit.

I actually like the old pipes, just not the gold anodized part. Now these new pipes are just wrong... Rest of the bike I could grow to love.



Hey Pete, any comment on the Manhood Mashing seat contour Ive read about on other sites?

Very nice review. I have been in the market for a nekked bike. At first, I thought it was too racy for me, but after seeing it in the flesh a few times, I have decided to buy one....I still hate the pipes, but thats an easy fix, and its gonna be much cheaper than the new Monster, whenever that comes out. Yeah, the bandit is great bike, but oh so homely, ditto for the BMW R1200R....

Hmm can I hang my HB bags on it? Does it come with a center stand? How much electric does it put out for my Gerbings?
