    That's what I thought! Maybe if the seat unit was a bit longer it'd look more balanced. Much better looking than the gsx1000s its based on though I think.

    Hate it. . . looks like another unfinished Japanese computer generated mess - just like all the "naked" bikes these days. Like cars, theyve all lost any identity they once had. . .

    (Mind you, i'm still living in a time when the exup valve was the height of technology, so what do i know )

    I was thinking it needs a little more length (as the missus keeps saying), it reminds me of a jet ski stuck on 2 wheels, especially if you just concentrate on the silver top section.

    That said I kind of like it for some weird reason. It's actually not a bad re-modelling of a classic bike instead of all these hipster cafe racer styles being pumped out these days.

    It looks a little front heavy I think, the lines aren't bad but it looks like there's just too much bulk at the front. I think I prefer the look of it to the z900rs as far as these retro remake things go though.
