I think this in either red or gun metal grey is the business!

Style over substance and bad styling at that.

I agree.Better without the fairing and I would prefer a smaller Rad.Those big long ones just seem to be another copied fashion and look out-of-place.Easy to fit a smaller thicker one methinks and or add an oil-cooler

They're trying to hide the rad aren't they, but every time I look at them it's the first thing I see!


I really like nose cone fairings. Probably a bit of a marmite thing. I quite like the small fairing on the new version of the modern SV too.
