I miss my old bike!! - Page 2 - Stromtrooper Forum : Suzuki V-Strom Motorcycle Forums
Other Motorcycles Forum for you to engage in banter about other motorcycles. Good place for former (and soon to be) V-Strom owners to keep on the site even though they are without a Strom. This is not a tech forum on other bikes. There are other sites for that.

I think I just found me a new "signature line".

Just going to nip it off with your teeth and steal it, eh?

I suspect, more than anything, it was a styling exercise. I'd be surprised if it built up enough dynamic pressure at the inlet to flow much, being as it was behind the frame tube and front wheel, at least at any realistic speed. Maybe helped keep the gas tank a little cooler, though. Never had a 2-stroke street bike, but I'd imaging the fuel economy pretty well sucked.
