When I look at this picture, I have two impressions: 1) CBR is still very ugly 2) the bike looks incredibly small, especially when you realize that Rea is not the tallest guy out there. And imagine MotoGP bikes which are even smaller. This is really the era of dwarf racers.

it might looked ugly, it might looked small, but on board its one of very few bikes that makes you feel like "one" with the bike. close to the R6. one of the sweetest handling stock litre superbikes.

Absolutely. Strange that it plays up at WSB level because as a road bike or "stocker" the newest Blade is phenominal and easily the best it's been since it became an 1000 back in 04.

I think the point is that with the Castrol colourscheme, the SP1/2 and especially the RC45 looked sooo good, and this does not. Form before function, I guess, but it's important to some fans!
