    I suspect we all understand this, but for the sake of extreme clarification:

    I had thought only the 96s had decals, but someone above said otherwise.

    What if you do a sudden "off the gas" at speed, clutch pulled, but without the braking part? Does it just go to idle or can you make it stall?

    Great Bike!

    I love K11RSs, and your Special Edition 96 looks like a great one.

    I've got a K12RS, which I believe has the same headlight system as the 04 GT (with flying brick engine). But your description isn't registering...

    Bare in mind that the design process is also often outsourced. At least by the smaller guys. I believe BMW did with the R90S and the R65LS (Hans Muth, not sure if he was an employee or a...
