Indeed. And once upon a time, you could find Hurricane decals on US models... but it has been a long time. Back in the days when someone asked what you rode and instead of alphabet soup and some CC numbers you'd say "Ninja" or "Katana". I'm not grumpy about the evolution, but I do wonder why we've moved away from it here.

I turned the QS back On for downshifts. Seems to work best with a closed throttle. Exhaust sound is pretty sweet shifting up through the gears under a moderate throttle.
everything is marked up from the dealer. a regular lead acid battery cost a buddy of mine over $200. He could have ordered an aftermarket lithium with charger for that price but he needed the battery immediately.

That was an online price, not a dealership price.
