That is one BMF. I thought of the Kawi Z-Rex while looking at these photos. I saw a B-King here in Seoul recently with a custom exhast system. It had an MV Agusta F4 style exhaust with the 4 outlets-- very cool, and a big improvement (in looks) over the stock cans.

Unique styling!?! That things makes a '59 Caddy look sedate...all it needs now are some whitewall tires...guess we know where the Dreamcycle designers work now...

I scoffed at the B-King pictures at first, but after seeing one in person it really doesn't look terrible. I would still but a Busa over this bike, but this one ain't bad.

I like them, the exhaust is over the top but that'll probably be an easy fix. I much prefer original designs like this than the usual cookie cutters from Japan Inc.

I've seen it - I don't think it looks absolutely hideous or anything, but the F'n "tank" is so big you could land a Bell Ranger atop it, with room for the Groundcrew............

The dealer had one with Leo pipes; it didn't look right to me. I guess everybody else in the world is waiting for the VMax II vs. BKing shootout. Should be pretty fun!

You have to look at it and the Vmax from a Japanese perspective, it's a combination of transformer and Anime` on wheels. Like I said, way better than some cookie cutter Duo-Glide copy

LEO pipes? WTF is that - just a straight piece of sewer pipe, done in the name of "Safety for the Moto-Lawman"?
