Looks like a supersport!
I'd rock it.
Prob one of the best looking mini-sports... but it is a rendering.

Looks like they took a FZ-09 and added some different plastics........ you can even see it is a triple in the rendering.

Looks awesome. If the 09 came out looking like that, I would have bought it over the naked version. Only ever had naked bikes - would be nice one day to own one with fairings.

Hmm, this is the image I was looking at:

Land vehicle Motorcycle Vehicle Car Motorcycle fairing

The blue one looks much more like a mini-sport.

The R3 is a 320cc twin to replace the R25 250cc twin and compete with the little Ninja and CBR 300's. The mockup with the FZ-09 engine should have been labeled R-09, or R-9, or R85...

This is the R25 that had it's blue version mocked to R3...

The quality must be better than the Kawasaki. The Ninja 300 felt like a cheap bike. I'm spoiled by our bike. I could get over slow, I couldn't get over something that felt like it was held together with rubber bands.

Every Kawi I've ever sat on or ridden has felt cheaply made-they just don't seem to have the quality of a similar class Yamaha or Honda. They make great motors, but the bikes as a whole feel budget...

If you spend Any Time on the Ninja300 Forum you'll quickly find that those people think this relatively New Ninja is the Best Ever. To say they LOVE The Bike is an understatement.

If people are joining a forum for the bike, they are doing so because they like the bike (for the most part). You can find forums for people who love 1000 lb women or who love anything. I was part of a Suzuki S40 forum. That bike was terrible.

Go ride a Ninja 300. I was literally going to trade in my Harley for one. I'm so happy I didn't. I finally found some place that would let me ride their used 300. That saved me from buying one. If I had never been on another bike, maybe I would have thought it was great. I have the experience of riding our bike since February though and it has been my main bike, so I am used to something much better.

I had a 08ZX6R. I got it with about 8000 miles on it. I liked it just as much as a cbr or gsxr. The only problem was the clear coat was orange peeled where you grip the tank with your knees. Never seen that before or after. It was a beautiful bike.
I really like the rc390 though. Anyone know which one makes more power?
