Not nearly as ugly as the ZX-10R. From some angles, this machine looks great. New exhaust, which I get the impression will be an expensive substitution, as this flattened sideswipe Honda design seems to be pretty integrated. I like the discrete Honda emblem on the tank too, I think that's a nice touch. I think Kawasaki is ready to let go of the tacky Ninja scrawl on the fairing and maybe substitute it with a big green K for a tank or emblem.

Evidently quite a few based on what we see in posts on all bikes the buying public is quite concerned on looks with that said what a facking ugly side and front fairing. Honda what were you thinking? the 06/07 much nicer looking
