Looks like 190/50 rear tire to me.
It must be the new Battlax BT021, which I believe is replacement for the aging BT020 model.

Yeah........I don't understand that at all. The tail/brake light is above the turn signals and I'm not sure what that is between them......( the turn signals )

To me the bike seems to have a lot of stuff bolted or stuck on it all over. Not near the clean orderly look of the FJR. No doubt it has a fine motor/chassis but the body work and detail seem cobbled to me. The black plastic you see through the windshield looks pretty cheap and plain..........

I really would like to see one in person..........I've been fooled by pictures lots of times.....

Agreed, that taillight treatment is all wrong. I can't believe that cobbled-up mess is going to make it into final production. Considering the clean, integrated tail treatments of the ZX14 and even the old ZZR1200, there is no excuse for this.

And the single can sucks. What are the chances of somebody putting out an aftermarket dual exhaust for the C14?

The chances are excellent if it sells. It didn't take long for the FJR. Wonder if you could go 4 into 2 and get some balance?

Wonder if a helmet will fit in the sidecase?

The Tail Light looks like is part of the Rack and not part of the body.

Yep. Wonder how hard it would be to put it back where it belongs?

I dunno if it is or not. Might be as easy as obtaining a ZX14 tail section and modding it.

A full face helmet will fit in the bags.
