A mere additional £1600 for the M Sport option which includes: M Sport colours, Acra silencer, sports windscreen, sports chain. Not much for that money. Dont think I will bother

Why not an all red bike like the old one, for the same price as the awful grey bike - now that would be nice.  :305:

Good to see that the 2021 does not have the centre black plastic strip above the fuel tank, this is now integral and the same colour as the tank. This applies to all bikes.  :305:

I like that M color combination!  But my 2019 HP is just now one year old, I think I'll keep it a little longer.

Picked up my 70-plate "Sports Style" on Saturday from Cotswold dealer - absolutely love it, but I am always going to worry about "maintenance-free" chain. Chose the bike for its colour (it really is a head-turner) not the chain, but happy to benefit from the engineering solution if it is a proven design. Does anyone know if this type of chain really is maintenance-free?

No-one has clocked up any miles on one yet.

Are the sprockets also coated with the same magic fairy dust?

That reminds me of one option for the 2004 Fireblade.  Back then, they described it as “a Liverpool Shell Suit”  :187:

Is it just because there is no rack on it that it looks rather front heavy ?   :084:

Does look that way.... but TBH....they are surprisingly nimble for a big heavy bike...I was blown away by how easy it is to throw around when I took one for a test ride several months ago.

Is there more white fairing on this image than on the configurator?
