The problem with those side photo's is ... that you will mostly never see a bike like that in real life.Wish it had a bit of a backwards rake to it. Don't like the 90deg straight out of the side the way it is, and it's boxy. Both of those to me makes me feel like it's a little cheap and unfinished. Granted I'm sure they did because someone sat down looking at it and thought real hard about how they could make a "cool" and "different" exhaust. Design inspired by a shoe box with a toilet roll attached to the back.
I'd probably be in love with it if it carried on the stealth fighter look of the Z1000(SX) with a rear ward rake and angled fairing type dealy with it rather than the shoe box carbon fiber cover.
Thats a great point, Moto gp would love to get rid of the side pipe, if it were possible. It has to be bad for aerodynamics, right, to have the side pipe/pipes like we have?The problem with those side photo's is ... that you will mostly never see a bike like that in real life.
I like that it fully tucked away, and it would seem to fix my lean angle problem too (exhausts touch first atm).
Just curious about the db output and dyno chart.
If they can produce the same values with such a tiny exhaust, then it makes me wonder why they still have a big one in moto GP etc ...
