    Looks like an RD 350 from this angle. Lol turbo99i will kill me.

    just for heck of it? It doesn't look impressive we all know cafe racers are suppose to be awesome.
    Until unless they are quality racers, I wont buy them.

    Umm no actually Cafe Racers are a take on regular road going bikes, to convert them in such a manner that they handle better. This has the takings, Gas rear shocks, shorter front shocks, flat seat, knee recess for tucking in, Short Handlebars.

    Though yes, it is missing the trademark tail that a Cafe Racer has. I am guessing that since this is a test mule, it would be missing.

    Did you notice the tiny foot and heel rests?

    Is this bike officially launched? If not then we should expect the production bike bit more likeable. Looks bit hunched.
