    Yea its obviously still in prototype mode , but even with indicators and tail light it would still look a cut above the rest.

    I cannot understand why they keep making the bum of these bikes higher and higher. Anybody over 50 looking for a smaller sporty bike wont be able to get their leg high enough to get on one.

    Could not agree with you more, plus it pushes your body up against the tank, no comfort at all.

    Just my take on it of course. Apart from the overly tall issue it does look sharp, and it will be a big hit here in Asia.

    Seems like quite a sporty riding position! Interesting how it's competing in the parallel twin market, would be in a class of it's own if they made it an inline 4.

    Just some speculation. I found a couple of things on the R3 being a 300cc 3 cylinder that would be mighty cool
