It has to be the way forward.

Reading Michael Neeves a few weeks ago and he said that the litre sportsbikes now have zero relevance to road riding. Too much power.

Reading Johhny Mac in PB last night and he said the Streetfighter V4 is a superior bike to the Panigale V4 on anything other than a race track.

Similar power/torque/weight to a Street Triple 675, sounds really promising and I loved my STR It was not a slow bike.

The acid yellow bodywork/red wheels combo certainly makes a brave statement.

Tidy looking bike overall though.

I'm not sure the yellow will be a production bike. All of the bikes we're seeing are pre-production models

If this bike is the perfect combination of mini/supertwins and supersport bikes, this will be a race weapon!!

It'll be knocking on the door of supersport lap times despite a 30bhp deficit.

What a beautiful place to test ride a bike.

It sounds decent that.

The look of it is very dated and the yellow with red wheels is absolutely rank

I like the black, if I could have a 2nd bike it would be smaller, lighter and more flickable than the sx.
It's on the lottery win garage list.

I’m with Stonsie, I really like the whole concept of this bike and being a softer sport ride position might be something my neck could actually handle.
I actually really like the look of it.

But totally agree, that yellow is puke.
