Well Tamburini took the foxy eye lights, under seat exhaust, vents/seat unit shape and the single side swingarm from the Honda NR750. The 916-998 wasn't 100% unique. Wink

I think it's moving to a stage where bikes are so well developed that they're all becoming similar. Bland and quick chassis, the same power output, the same aerodynamics. Personally give me a bike with a spindly tube frame, too much power which comes in with a punch at high revs and wooden brakes. For example I've got one of those PS1000s and someone told me the chassis dimentions are the same as the 999, if I wanted 999 handling I'd buy a 999 and I did feel a little robbed. But it might be a ZXR1200 or KTM Superduke next, the ZXR1200 is winning mainly because it's a rapid 230kg bike with shitty suspension and chassis. Laughing
