    The tail is a bit strange. Not really a fan. It should be matte black around the fans. Never seen one like that before.

    Agreed, but the rest of it looks pretty clean though

    I had thought that something about the tail accentuated the twin-arsehole design in a way that I couldn't identify, but now that you point it out, the red around the fan shrouds makes the tail look chunkier from side-on, in the same flabby-thighed way as the Yamaha SZR660, and accentuates the contrast between bright painted bodywork and gazing into the dark abysses. Boring as it may be, factories generally get these things right. I'm sure it could be returned to matte black without too much trouble, but the question is why did it get to be red in the first place? Generally people don't bother with such things unless the tail needed repainting anyway due to damage.

    If I were to consider acquiring a Tornado(hypothetically - I'm trying to cut down on bikes, and then there's the small matter of having to pay money for one), would the 1130 model be a better choice than the 900? e.g. https://www.bikesales.com.au/bikes/d...nado-1130-tre/
