    I know the 19 bike is purported? To have got rid of the assymetrical headhights need to beef up the fairing fixing & get rid of that dumb windscreen design & they"ll be on to a winner!

    I reckon the 19 will be about 175kg, 205bhp and slightly smaller.

    I cant see them getting it down to 175Kg, not wet, for a road legal bike. Especially with Euro4.
    What I like about the current bike is you can use it in the real world. Reading the long term reports in MCN on the Duc V4, if it rains the water/muck goes EVERYWHERE!! Up your back, down your sides, up the inside of the screen! Thats no bloody good.
    Punctuation - the difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit.

    +1. Not a chance with Euro 4 and all the other road going paraphernalia. I personally hope it will be physically smaller and much more track focused but that won’t be a view shared by everyone.

    I'm hoping it's BIGGER!
    Seriously tho, I'm assuming the spy shots of the 2019 model had JAWS from James Bond riding it.
    If it was a normal sized bloke, you'll be able to sell your garage and keep it in your top pocket!

    Re: 2019 bike

    The current GSXR1000 is physically smaller and a few Kg's lighter than the S1K but has a roomier riding position, I'd be surprised if the '19RR doesn't go down a similar route

    The race teams certainly won't want it to be any bigger.
