"Always digged the Firebolts...."

The front fairing is very pretty indeed.

Yea it is
That's why I love my current setup

Firebolt with a Lightning tail
IMHO it is the best of both XB worlds, and I am one of the lucky people to have snagged a Helibar so my handlebars are closer to an XBS than an XBR

Precursor to the Aprilia RSV4 look. Full fairing, bobbed tail. Clearly, a Renaissance man, way ahead of his time.

I always thought the Lightning handled superbly. Never rode a Firebolt, but I am guessing the more aggressive riding position would make it even better.

How are the erogs btw the 1125r and Firebolt? For this who know...
