Yes Manson, It certainly was (well kept) a new ride with stock exhaust. And if I remember correctly, it did not even have a belly pan. He was accompanied with two other bikes (a Pulsar & Activa or Kinetic).

Pretty much identical to Nik's FZ1.

He was a very humble parsi guy who stopped and asked a few questions about the ride quality and comfort. Asked if he could sit on the bike and get the feel.

I was so engrossed drooling at his machine, honestly was not able listen to what questions he was asking.

Sorry, could not click any pics but the bike sounded simply awesome.

Same guy who owned owned a certain golden Fireblade with a dragon on it. Hated that colour scheme.

I don't need links buddy . You'll see soon enough. R6 first, then 600RR. Oh, and the FZ6 next year.

With regards to 600ccs, I would love to see the likes of Honda CB 600F than R6 or CBR 600RR which are mostly meant for the track.

The nakeds are perfect for our conditions and I'd give anything to hear that inline roar!!!
