I saw a pic that looked like the exhaust is now dualed? Is that correct? If so what do you think? I didnt think it was possible but if thats the case that damn thing just keeps getting worse looking. fuggly

Click Me. Its official, the squid-mobile is now symmetrically ugly. Now it's twice as expensive to ditch the nasty ass stock exhaust. Call me old fashioned, but I like the single side mounted exhaust on the older bikes.

you know 10 years ago i would never be on a ninja and swear up and down about gsxr's.......it's not ten years ago though, that bike looks haggard. those pipes are sooo bad and then they decided to put two on them. why are they the only company not putting it under the seat? or just cut the can's all the way off.....(i wish)
they need to get with it.....

I know all the mags say it feels light at speed and has quick turn in but when you pick the bike off the stand to sit on it it feels HEAVY..Alot heavier than 12 lbs...Perhaps that's the correct weight difference from the K6 but it sure feels like alot more...I wonder if slow speed handling will be as good.

Yeah, whats suzuki thinking. How a bike looks sitting in the starbucks parking lot is the most important thing. They should be trendy like everyone else and put the pipes under the seat even though its more restrictive and would add even more weight to the bike.

:rolleyes:

Yea I guess it improves aerodynamics and makes the thing lighter. Whatever :helmet:

Its nasty - go to the gixxer forum and youll see even the non sell out riders over there dont like the looks.

Maybe you didn't understand my post but when a bike works as well as the gixxer does its looks are about the last thing I care about. And if it's possible, I care even less what other people think about its looks.

Oh I understood - you tried to say if it works well who cares. My point is that making the bike heavier and adding a nasty looking exhaust doesnt add to the bikes performance. So it moots your point.

You make no sense. In fact Id say your :bs: . You say you dont care what they look like but in fact that is why your posting. Your posting on a thread about how a bikes looks and your saying you dont care about looks? Pardon me but that sounds retarded, and is fallacious on many different levels. If you didnt care about looks you would not be posting in this thread.

Maybe you should just come clean admit to being a fucking zuki lover and go against the grain in the open and defend the fuglly looks. Not that thats not what your really doing. :helmet:
