The bikes nice but the prices far from my reach. I keep my 07.

It's not 193 at the rear wheel, new blade still tops it mid range... It's like all these new bikes.. Great on the track with the right setup.. Crap when driving to work or charging around public roads with your mates.. Zx-10, BMW all the same you need to thrash it in every gear to get it to go

Sweet stuff you get with it, raising the bar for jap manufactures. When honda starts listening to the people, their V4 bike will have something more than "fly-by-wire"

Absolutely beautiful, and I'm sure it's a monster to ride! Maybe someday...

Someone told me they have "wheelie control" as well, where if it detects the front end of the bike lifting past a certain point, it will dumb down the torque to put it back on the ground... Of course it can be toggled on and off, in case you want to lift it up I guess...

Electronic shocks and a big price tag... I looked into buying a 2010 model last year but the insurance came in at over $200 a month so I stuck to my Honda! Also the one eyed headlight look isn't the most appealing... these were taking at the international motorcycle show in dallas. I've got pics of the regular one I can post also...

I wish they would make it all symmetrical. The headlights and both side fairings are different. To me that's just dumb. I think I may pick up the '13 Blade and call it a day.
