ditto ... as Sean Paul's uncle would say "The party done!" i.e. for Kawi.Originally posted by Greensmoke
Look at how much higher the R1 mirrors sit so that you can actually Fn see behind you in them. Look at the slope and geometry of the R1 gas tank, now look at the Kaw's.. no comparisson. I have never seen a more sexy tank than that R1s. The exhaust of the R1 is also, again, one of the best integrations I have ever seen. The turn signals on the R1 are smaller and are better tucked in. The Kaw looks plane outdated.
The tank and exhaust of the R1 are just stunning and the Kaws is not - period.
Well, I for one - in general - do not like the underseat pipes at all. Thank god Kawi did not go with the market hype and build a ridiculous "ass pipe".Originally posted by JimmyG
That R1 is pretty as hell .... why did'nt Kawi go w/ the undertail exhaust? ...
It is pretty. Brutally kind of. It's a matter of taste and it's just how I like it.Originally posted by JimmyG
am also hoping this is not the final ZX10R ... if it is, Kawi does'nt get it ... regardless of performance, people like sexy things! I feel they should have spent more time making it pretty!
172 @ the crank = roughly 155-160 @ the rear wheel. Some sources have claimed that Kawi should have something like 160 @ the rear wheel. Phew. It will be very very interesting see the real figures when the 1st shootout with dyno results comes out.Originally posted by _6R_
Anyway, Yamaha says 172 hp from the crack without ram-air and 180 with ram-air. Whoah... If the real numbers are even close to those, it sure will be one hell of a machine... BTW, looking at the tachos, the Honda redlines at 11500, Kawi at 12500(?) and the Yamaha at 13750! [:0]
