    I was only teasing - trying to provoke a response ( maybe a few pictures with that funny blocky paintwork that they use for when testing secret models :D)

    They need to introduce something because the current Fireblade is useless in any form of racing.

    I think it did OK in OZ. ...also in endurance racing....it took the 1199 4yrs to get anywhere and if we went by reasults we would all be on zx10rr

    Yeah, the Penrite Honda won the Oz championship last year and is currently leading the series with one race to go for 2019.

    Some could say that it's 'only' Australia, however there is still factory support for the Yamaha and Kawasaki teams.

    Also fair to say that WSB has seen recent improvements with both Andrew Irwin and Xavi Fores.

    Fact remains though, the bike continues to under perform in comparison to progress made by other manufacturers.:(

    There has been media hype and speculation over this for some time. However, this is the closest 'factual' information to be released. Those in the know will accept much of this as being very close to the mark;).

    It is getting more interesting !

    EICMA is only three weeks away - starts 05 November 2019, so it does not surprise me that a few more details are leaking out.

    It is tantalizingly close !

    What's more crazy there is that 5th November is only three weeks away. Where the hell has this year gone?!

    May I recommend the classic, yet effective, M18A1 Claymore anti-personnel mine?

    Remember the "FRONT TOWARDS ENEMY" is more than just a polite suggestion.
