I personally don't buy a bike for looks, but that being said that new ZX10 is the ugliest bike ive ever seen. My buddy has one and I just laugh when I look at it. It looks like they had a contest and said, ok people make the ugliest motorcycle you can think of, and that's the winner. What were they thinking? After riding a new ZX and my 2012 CBR there's no question I made the right decision.
I think peoples point with being able to buy "knockoff" plastic is that the ONLY difference between a repsol and a non-repsol is visual. A "knockoff" could easily be just as nice or nicer depending on how your mods are executed. The bottom line is that the fact that your bike is a "real repsol" doesnt mean shit. The fact that it has a higher retail value probably means that you paid more for it initially so nobody is winning there but Honda. I bought my bike to RIDE, not to trade or re-sell, and I dont give half a shit about a few hundred dollar difference on resale. Very few people care if the title says repsol. People are going to remember an auctmart repsol just as much as they will remember your authentic one. Spend more money on a repsol from honda-you have a blade that's been repainted. get a blade and make a repsol replica-you have a blade that's been repainted. WTF.
You just proved my point. Cheap plastics make a fake repsol. Thanks
And the fact that my bike is a real repsol means just that. Its not a fake and is worth more. And when I sell or trade I will get more. Guaranteed by myself.
You're talking in circles. I guess everyone is. The one fact out of all this. Cheap knockoff plastics or even oem replacements does not a repsol make.. that makes a replica off a repsol. Maybe you're not understanding the simplicity of this. i dont give a shit if you dont give a shit
Exactly.. which is why I got my bike coated in pink. People always remember me... and the dudes be like : "Son, wtf is up w/ your bike? That's homo as f*ck dawg ".. and I be like .. But you see those females though right? Am I right? They'll remember me ...
and then I throw the middle finger up at em .. and be all like : haters.. haters go and eat sh*t.
Nice! You got a pink bike to match your pink Vagina!
Some idiot is thinking short term 'potential' profits rather than the negative consequences of 'cheapening' the respsol brand in the long run. From the way that horrid 2013 600rr looks, it seems people at Honda are asleep at the wheel in more than one way. Throwback Jerseys = Throwback Motorcycles and now Repsol can be found on the side of a wheel barrel
Right you are! Couldn't have said it better.
