I think it's a phucking awesome bike for $10,500 and whoever gets one is gonna fall in love with that Triple FZ-09 engine. Tiger 800's can suck it. They look real pretty in the rear view.

If they add ABS, and with the other adds over the FZ-09, I don't see how in the hell they will be under ten grand. They are in business to profit, afterall.

Probably more like $11,000.

Not alot of talk about this bike on the webs, not so sure that it will compete with the FZ-09 like Suzuki hopes. The 1000 model will probably do alot better, once it is released.
