    damn i love this bike!!

    gen 4 has most resemblance to how gen 1 was designed... going to the naked look..
    - less plastics (sides, belly pan, headlight, bare fork)
    - turn signal location
    - tank crease of gen 4 is same as gen 1 just that gen 4 has palstic in the mid instead of just the crease..
    - instrument cluster shows temp, etc.
    - hazard lights, added flash to pass

    -from a gen 3 would be rearsuspension location, frame, engine

    few changes below

    tad shorter wheelbase

    1

    headlight/plastics- not everybodys favorite but functional wide and bright..


    9
    4

    agressive tail section, narrower sub frame, better for shorter people like me..

    2

    coolant reservoir at the rear now, easier to check..

    16

    hazards are back from gen 1..

    13

    flash to pass.. good option in the city..

    14

    intrument cluster.. everything there except gear indicator :P

    12


    almost eggshape looking, tad bigger than gen 3

    the intake howling cause

    20150509_162748

    when plastic taken off on both side

    rectifier here now..

    How long is your riding season on a naked bike in Canada? It is mean looking!
    Skill is what keeps you on two wheels.

    Situational awareness combined with skill is what keeps you out of harm's way.

    ATGATT combined with Situational Awareness and Skill means you might live to ride another day when that deer runs into your bike or that drunk blows through that stop sign.

    Just to clarify......this is not the same for all of Canada.

    Nice machine!
    Where did you get the exhaust? Does it sound too loud for long rides?

    You rode to Pandora? Did you take all the arrows out of the tires of the big truck? LOL

    Looks like you get hit with clean air on that bike.

    The exhaust. That thing looks so good. Lets say it like this. If my bike came with that, as original, I would not buy an aftermarket even if it added 30 hp.

    Any chance you have a pic of the non exhaust side, showing how the exhaust looks...from its "bad" side, if you will.

    that ermax tiny windscreen is surprisingly has the effect of like a ninja 1000 with oem windscreen, surprisingly.. w/o it (if its windy) it has the effect of choking wind

    hey RC i posted them on the exhaust thread but anyway easy transfer lol
    technically invisible unless you really want to peek at the bottom by sitting or raising the rear of the bike..
    when dealership was looking at the left side scratching heads "where's the exhaust? had to look twice at the right side because it was so perrfectly flush to the side
