I need to see more pics of the Kawacker in action. Thats a mean looking paint job.

Also that 1098 must be the only one in India?

Damn!! The Ducati looks mean,no matter what you do to it. Thats gotta be one amazing ride.

How did the GSX feel? Apparently,its got these bursts of energy,especially around the 10K rpm range..
