  5. Hell Yeah! :cool:
    I've been looking around at a few mid-range bikes,
    Namely Yamaha FZ6 and the Suzuki SV650, but this might be a real contender, nice looking and nice price!

  6. Good looking bike, realistic price, and a direct competitor to Yams FZ6, but what is so 'streetfighter' about it? Its just another naked middleweight built to a price.

  7. Yarr, apparently everything without fairings is a street fighter these days...

    Damn nice looking bike though streetfighter or not...

    Still haven't seen any power specs on it anywhere. Anyone got any figures??

  8. yeah my understanding of a street-fighter, is a one of custom style bike, anything that is mass produced is hardly unqiue, still this will be one bike i will be adding to my list once of restrictions

  11. Boring!

    Could have been so much better and more like the mighty 'B-King'.

  12. can you explain for us that aren't aware? I am guessing you are referring to the bandit? :?

  13. B-king was Suzuki's naked, supercharged concept bike, based on a Hayabusa- a true streetfighter!

    If it ever makes it into production, I'm sure they will tame it down quite a bit.

  15. sheesh... that's a lot cheaper then I thought it would be :eek:

    Suddenly the gsr is in contention for my next bike pick :?
     
     Top
  16. This is what it is meant to be based on...looks a bit 'pale' in comparisson don't you think :?:

    It is very cheap but I'd personally rather pay the extra and get something cool.
