Other Motorcycles Forum for you to discuss anything about any 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.

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.
