Must admit when I got mine, there was a slight feeling I'd just bought a kid's toy

However, was more down to the garish (and not beautifully finished) frame & wheels and the smallish dimensions, though the graphics hardly helped admittedly.

The black ones seem to suit the de-stickered look better, although I think the tank still needs a Duke or KTM logo at the very least.

I've toned my white one down a little by removing the belly pan, together with a pillion peg delete I think it improves the look quite a bit.

Less is more - You can only use 150hp .001% of the time, but you can use 150kg 100% of the time ...........

@ultradoux

I would like to see some details of your rear brake reservoir.

I have also done the R6 shock mod' and currently have the reservoir cable tied to the frame as the R6 shock nitrogen reservoir prevents refitting on the original bracket.

Hey Crystaljohn ,

I also used a tie-rap to stick it to to frame , but on the other side of the downward frame-tube .
Very " not pro ", but it's simple and it works ;-)

Neat Mods and good looks, really like those all terrain tires. But removing the engine underbelly will make it collect all kinds of muck and the chrome plate in the exhaust looks cool when it is on. It also needs a decent radiator guard along with a front mud guard extender. Xtreme vision plus 130% is also a good upgrade over LEDs. Well it might be practical for you in your country, but in Assam, India where roads are 9 times out of 10 dirty and muddy a bike without those parts seems to be a nightmare to maintain.
