    I don' like the idea of retractable winglets.......I mean what's the point? They're not retractable on any superbike or moto gp bike so why on a production bike?

    Winglets are one of the upgrades that some people will want to ogle at when it's parked up so it's no good if they only spring out above 80mph or whatever :rolleyes::D

    You'll never see emo_O

    I really hope it looks even a little like that.
    Only a few more weeks and we will know!

    True, but thankfully in Ireland we have silky smooth, almost glasslike road surfaces! LOL
    Yeah, O, might keep my good ol' metal wheels so!

    And there is also a side exhaust in the pic, is there yet another side exhaust on the left side of the bike?

    GB Racing covers, Brembos and Ohlins, I think someone is just doing a wishlist drawing.

    Would have thought the press would have some pics by now of the bike out on the road in nondescript/boxey fairings, the sort they use to try and hide it from view.

    Yes I agree Nigel I meant in comparison to the competition, and I feel the other manufacturers have caught up and even exceeded Honda in design and build quality, so therefore offer better value for money.
    I have been a loyal Honda customer for many years, but not any more i'm afraid
