I read in a Cycle World review where one of their guys was complaining about scorching his riding suit. The CW capsule summary is pretty favorable, however.

Now the set-up that was featured in the Robb Report was pretty cool.
I haven't seen Mission Impossible:III - I guess that this was the featured bike.

I much prefer the lower version of the high pipes.
On the MI3 bike, aren't they running a single pipe on each side? Robb Report had some nice pictures but they only showed the bike from one side.
