That is even because the pictures are all of the same bike aka R1
I know that Manson ,i was talking about the Framing and the B&W treatment.

In a little more time we'll see its value getting dropped just because its too common.something which happened in US with the R1 and the Busa.they were selling for peanut money.
That`ll be good for potential buyers.

manishasrani: Thanks- Yes, what a gorgeous machine! I rode her when she had a few hundreds on the clock, and even though I was going relatively gently and learning the ropes (also riding in city conditions- Koramangala Barista, down the Inner Ring Road and back), she went like and ICBM dipped in Full Cream.

Unusual Yosh on her: IIRC it was some complex section- not even tri-oval and was made of multiple materials including Carbon fibre. He's since pulled one bag full of steel wool out of the silencer and says it sounds much Hotter.

Not safe for him to tell me where he parks it!

Nitin: Come to think of it, 'twas my first time as well. Have also never ridden a Suzy (the big ones) or a Yamaha. Or a Beemer, or a Duke. Or a Guzzi. Or a modern Triumph. Or a ...heck looks like I ain't ridden. Period. When the planet runs out of hydrocarbons, I plan to acquire a horse!

Are Yoshi exhausts sold in India, or does one have to imprort them? There's a guy at work who's got a Yamaha R6 with the R77 exhaust.Sweet sounding ride!
