    Honda is looking good for MotoGP next year. I guess we'll still have to see what everyone else brings to the table though. With the further development of the V engine layout as opposed to the inline four, we may actually see another v-4 (or v-5) sportbike one of these days.

    Go to Superbikeplanet.com and you can see pictures of it (unpainted of course). It's was shorter than the 990cc bike but still looks fast. It's said to only be half a second slower on the Motegei track that the 990cc bike.
     
  5. The shorty race tail is dfferent!

  7. Thanks for the post Hoz! The bike looks absolutely TINY! With this thing only a half second slower, do you think that it will get quicker at time a R&D goes along?
