seriously. Maybe over there. Her e it's still just a fireblade. And is subject to the same trade values as any other fireblade. If I can go on eBay and pick up the same fairing for $400 it's nothing special. Keep trying though

in their consumer line... in their consumer line.. for a superbike and apply it to every two wheel driven motorcycle in their stable.

The point of special edition branding is not to see it between the legs of every hoon on the planet. It cheapens what's 'special' about it.

And while I could care 2 sh*ts about whats between another man's legs or about the respsol special editions. I can appreciate the value of limited runs of it on super bikes and have enough where with all to understand how its cheapened when its now on donkey carts.

So, please save the professional racing circuit history lessons .. I am well aware of them, respol, and how there is a big difference between it and Honda's consumer products and the 'spirit' of its branding therein.

Now, back to the clown show of penis measuring and calling people haters ...

Problem is that it's not a limited edition if they bring it out on every model and pretty much every year

So effectively you get two years every model revision with repsol scheme. Therefore not limited or special in any way

and you still wouldn't have a Repsol. You would have a fireblade with cheap china plastics. get it?
keep trying though.

you don't care about us here. and i sure as f*ck don't care about you over there. i could give two shits what other people think about Repsols. And vice versa I'm sure.

like I said, it sells for more, resale is higher and it's very popular......so again, haters eat shit! oh and TerrorCell go here:

seriously one website you link shows it as the most desirable sportbike. Could you try much harder to justify your purchase, it's the internet there is websites that can prove anything. Trust me people see you on your repsol and think 'this guy is a twat, does he think he is Casey stoner'

It's not really about having a better blade or anything. For me it's just about being a lol different than most. I'd be just as happy with any color of the new blades. The Repsol is nice and would be cool to have but I'll settle for any blade at this point. I don't think I'm better than anyone else. After all we but bikes to make them our own anyway right?
