Yeah the tank looks too tall. Although I think it might actually be the same size as the prototype, it's just the paint scheme makes it look different.

It was the tail that really made it special. If you see this one in videos the rear end looks like a Tupperware box. The whole paint scheme doesn't tie together like on the prototype. They messed up the triangle hole and the exhaust isn't under the seat. It's just lost all its aggression.

Apparently Akrapovic have said they are going to make the under seat exhaust for it as an after market option. I think it might be popular....! Hopefully some kind of tail tidy to carry the back light and number plate will come with it.....

That could improve it a lot, especially with a pillion delete. I still really like the front end and the swingarm
