If I was a teenager I'd love one of these. For the price it looks pretty cool. As for the streetfigther term, I don't see why you guys take it so personnal, ok so it's a naked bike, not the end of the world...whats the minimum HP for a streetfighter? 100HP, 150HP? Can't say I ever read rules on that...

Please don't give BMW ideas

Some Herman will drop an S1000RR on the way out of the factory and next thing you know, a drop test well be mandatory for all bikes in the EU.
