180bhp and less than 180kgs. Stunning. Sure I read somewhere that the R has ALL it's power on tap all the the rev range. Can it be true?

Very nice. I have no more business on that than I do an SD. But if I had the money I would buy it 8)

That bike is dead sexy....wow.

I wonder if an SD has ever been fitted with a similar exhaust? Might be kinda cool, right?
