I think the large sloped headlights are a way of improving aerodynamics on a naked bike.
Did you manage to get in to 6th gear

I was driving triple digits (mph) for quite a while (few hours). I was pacing behind a Porsche with my friends wife at the wheel. Long straight rode (Miami towards the Keys) with a highly motivated driver! The Dragster RR is one of my favorite bikes!! But at speed the aerodynamics don't make for comfort and like I said the front end got lighter. Spoke wheels look incredible but do not help in the handling department.


The new brutale 1000 hopefully uses some wizardry to deal with all that power and speed in a naked. Maybe take some hints from it?

I may be a quality light, but is doesn't compete aesthetically in my (worthless) opinion.

You should remove the plastic covers next to the headlight. Makes to headlight itself look very small for some reason.

And IMO, it doesnt look ugly but OEM headlight fits the bike better. Flows more with the shape of the bodywork around it.

I'll be interested to hear the review of how it affects handling and buffeting at speed.

I did the modification and it didn't affect the handling at all, however i didn't like the look of it so swapped it back.

you could always do a projector retrofit in the headlight. I did this with my wife's old ninja 300.
