I can say with almost 100% certainty that I will own one of these bikes when released in September. Just wanted to get others opinions on what I believe is the only major problem, as far as I'm concerned anyway... The exhaust is one complete unit, which means there will be no slip-on options... this translates to over $1000 for a "complete" system, including fuel management of some sort, PCV, etc... The Yamaha FZ6r has a similar setup, and when replaced with a full exhaust system, it is ridiculously loud. As I must have an after market exhaust on my bike (for the "improved sound"), not having a slip on available is going to be a major hurdle for me... Some FZ6r owners modified their exhaust setups by drilling out, or gutting a portion of the rear section. On the youtube videos, they sounded good and not too loud. This is an option, but I would hate to chop up a brand new bike. I dunno, maybe someone can make me feel better about this one piece exhaust issue... any thoughts?
