Finally a use for the "F" version ?

I have never been fond of the "F" and I'm glad I committed to the naked before it appeared.
Seems someone else agrees with me and has done something about it.

That looks really smart.
I always wanted a Katana but they were a bit out of my price range back in the day.
I especially like the rear mudguard. I wouldn't mind finding something like that to go on mine at the moment.
If I had one criticism it would be about the size of the muffler. They could have at least tried to make it look less conspicuous.

I like it, except for the tail section. Its getting to the point where we wont even be able to have a small tail bag to carry stuff.

As Cool as it looks I would rather see the development budget dollars being used for technical improvements rather than cosmetic targets and/or nostalgia.

It does look good though.

Kind of like If you look at the Kawasaki Z900RS cafe they have been showing, it looks great with it old school inspiration but it is heavy, and doesn't make great power for the $$ so for me, I could never buy it.

I disagree, there's nothing wrong with the F model, it's different to most other bikes out there and that's a good thing.

Just...gross! I'm glad someone likes it - if we all liked the same things this world would be a boring place.
