Motoshow Paris Just came back from the motorshow in Paris and saw there irl the ZZR1400. I had hoped that irl the bike was less ugly. Well, it isn't
The front is way too bulky/big/ugly. I don't think this is a bike for me.
The ZX-12R is mentioned in the French brochure as a 2005 model, but with new colors (black/gold)

I know it's supposed to be basically the same dimensions as the zx12r, but damn...that thing looks huge in relation to the people standing around it. Or maybe they're all midgets.
I really hate that rear subframe...it looks like it could support an elephant. On the plus side, it looks like it has a ton of ground clearance for the lower...which will work out well for the drag racers planning to slam it.

It's almost like they were trying to follow the stealth look that was popular with all the angled body parts.
I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

i'll wait and see what the 06 xx and busa are. The honda 1000r is looking better and better. Judging by the changes made this year, it shouldnt be hard to get 180 rwhp from the honda 1000r.

The 06 busa is just a new color. Gunmetal LE which looks like silver and white, and the 2 reg colors are red/grey and blue/grey. They just put them up on the suzuki site.

It makes me puke... Did you notice the fins pointing back?? Can't wait to lean my knee
in on those fins... that will feel real good ...
I fucking hate it... it's a neutered busa...
How could Kawasaki build such a cool looking 10r and the 12r and then build this
fugly damn thing???
I was always so proud of Kawasaki... now I'm embarrassed for them.

I'm sure Kaw will wait until after they release thier new bikes before
they start to panic. I personally think they will do well. Pushing the envelope
