Cool then!!! I just jumped to that conclusion because it said Kickstart and Batteryless EFI???

Schwing A Ling then!!!! The cool factor is off the charts for 10k. Try and build any bike that is purpose built like this beauty and the $$$$ is WAY up there, plus, it appears to be a gas and ride ordeal. I dig it.

That is one sweet bike,, I think I might have to make a trip out to the importers when they get one in to test ride.. 17L is 4.5 gallons plus? and the newer GG Fi bikes have had the kinks worked out of the Fi rather well.. They get good reviews,, especially compared to the older(pre 07) fi bikes.. And that fairing doesnt stick out much different than the KTM rally ones like mecca systems,, so I dont see an issue there...

Boing!!

I wish it was a 600 though.... 450s are cool for racing but in the long run for long distance, more is always better for durability. But I might have to get one of these suckers this year. That thing screams badass.

For all of those guys doubting a fairing, go 70mph all day long on an unfaired bike in the wind. It sort of sucks. The fairing on my 640 does just enough to make a difference on long rides. It needs long travel and high clearance to do what it does, haul asssssssss in the desert. You can't haul ass offroad with a bike that has 10" ground clearance.

this bike looks to be race oriented..does that mean maintenance as far as oil changes would be by the hours or miles?

Anyone have guess as to why these guys do NOT run the rear tanks?

Quinn's CRF 450x has them, wondering why they are absent from all of the team pictures above.
