Not everyone will like it

Post by alanw » Sun Jan 13, 2008 8:32 pm

This is the fourth design & is only a mock up. Hardly seen the family over xmas. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I like it, sometimes HATE it ! ......So if you Hate it please keep it to yourself, unless it's constructive. I'm adding air scoops just in front of where the indicators should be.But I might over egg the pudding #-o I've got the lights, bought them from Jamie. The black panel is just me playing with colours , & the screen is u/s & held there with masking tape & I will probly remove any sign's of the indicator mounts .....................................................................................

I think it looks great, stick that fairing extension bit that you showed us before, green and black colours-sorted. :lol:

Seriously looks very good, nice to see an update like the tyga rgvs but keeping some of the KR character, full marks from me.

Air scoops sound good too .

extend the belly pan and you have something to rub in tygargv mans face!!! i like the tyga kits but prefer yours if you give the under carrige some growth, still it looks the nuts as is. the extension on the belly will just perfect it. get everyones vieww first(im sure you will) as i could well be barking up the wrong tree. im amazed at how motogp it looks. the proverbal dogs bollox!

yes, like it lots....very angular and agressive much like the current crop of sports bikes.

Is that a standard swinger with a (dummy) braced attachment?

thats a great job, will look really good. 8) might be hard to locate air scoops without spoiling your nice lines. I agree with others about extended belly but it all looks great anyway.

Couldn't help noticing a passing resemblence to the 2007 ZX-RR race bike.
The fairing extension and side vents seem to suit it, the lights going where the front vent should be, and just smooth over the rest of the fairing. The green paint job is superb, with the black on the lower fairing. Check out that swing-arm!
