MS Sneak Preview

Our spy cameras got a glimpse of the new MS 1200 resting alongside a country shack in the back woods of Northern Japan. Some features include multifaceted paint work (customizable), rear chrome brake, quick change wheels, chainless drive, oversize hand grips, sturdy straight fork, off-road capable tires, and an adjustable color coded seat.

Sadly, our boys were not able to get a shot of this beauty in action!

Looks like Ohlins forks up front? Very tasty!

You are mistaken, those were the concept models for the 999 range.
I think you'll agree that the production version didn't quite live up to the original styling exercise.........

You may be right there. Will have to check the facts on that. Oh yeah, that may or may not be an Ohlins front fork (yellow and all), but I am told it has unique adjustable axle height to fit growing riders.

Beauty certain is in the eye of the beholder.

1098 looks like a japanese triumph 675 to me.
999 is a far more original and better looking design IMHO!!!
