    It should be an epic-looking bike when it's all complete!

    Like your style , would consider the HPE though.., and I'm told that Devil offers complete with headers and open all the way

    - imho the tailpiece from Alex looks much Nicer than Peters.
    Think there's one available from the french sqad on here with right decals on as well.

    Decisions...decisions..- would love to be in your place though

    RS Clone?

    Aussie... I see you're making big plans. Trying to emulate the TNT RS is a lofty goal. The exhaust is totally different. The tail section is off a MV Agusta. The dash is a race-style all digital readout. The swingarm looked to be off a Yamaha R-6 or so. And the mounting and layout of the steering damper looks unique as well. I like it all... but am wondering how much of the overall look you're going to try and emulate?

    Ugh

    thats the ugly version!

    I'm thinking more along the lines of the one in this link but with the stock carbon exhaust and CR clip ons.

    Nathan,
    A few changes to part colours and the R160 can look either striking or so so!
    Whereas the Cafe Racer & Titanium verge on being understated yet manage to still stand out in a crowded line of bikes.
    Recently saw a large number of Ducatis, almost all red, others mainly white...
    there was more colour on the owners than their bikes!
    Perhaps they should have used Benelli silver/metallic-green instead of wannabe Ducati red...
    coincidently, the R160's other colour is white!
    ...is Benelli perhaps copying Ducati?
    & fair enough too, if they're doing whatever they can to keep their company afloat (am sure no genuine Benelli bike owner would wish Benelli factory workers out of their jobs.)

    well

    I'm getting the white with red frame, and just adding a few carbon pieces. keeping it understated.

    my CRG/Pazzo copy billet levers arrived from Hong Kong today in black with a red adjuster, standard length. very impressed for $50 Aussie incl postage :-).

    just waiting to here from importers this week on a final date of bikes arrival.
    Benelli just has to send through some final paperwork and the bikes are set to leave italy. hopefully 3rd week in October will see it in Perth.
