Well... I think most people that build Fighters rethink the purpose. Most of the well done ones I've seen have much higher bars and way larger gearing. Not good for extended 100mph plus blasts down a flowing road, true. But perfect for throwing the bike around a tight back road and wheelies at will through town.I have mixed feelings about them. I think some do look pretty good but then again what's the point of having a high performance bike with no fairings? Kind of defeats the purpose.
Rode one. Very comfy to ride, extremely fun too. I almost traded in my Duc for it, but am holding out for the something else.:+1: And there are a couple of people on this site that have built some nice street fighters.
I haven't seen it in person yet, but I think the new Ducati Street Fighter looks good.
