    no idea what it is, headlamps are similar but closer together and there doesn't appear to be the central air intake. The old shape rsv was around for ages before they changed the front, too soon for an udate surely?

    yeah just looked at the front of the 05 mille and its totally different. Hoping its a 450/550, but maybe its gonna be sommet like a 750, to compete with the Ducati 749??? Im hoping for a 450 as anything bigger and I probably wont be allowed to have it lol. My dad wants me off my road bike already? Its a right bummer when we have a bike shop of our own and he wants me to get a stupid car (Ok, i'll do my test, but I'd rather use the train!!)

    it's not a shield....just enhanced it in photoshop...it's a new air scoop design .

    based on that, i'm guessing it's not the 125, the 250 is already out, so my money is on either a 450 - 550 because of the serious potential for filling that gap in the sportsbike market.

    tempted to say something like a 600 - 750, but suzuki & kawasaki would eat them alive.

    ..oh, and yamaha

    Hopeing it could be the 450/550, but due to how narrow it is it could well be a new scooter, 50cc/125cc/250cc/500cc but i guess only time will tell.

    looks like a too big gap above the lights to be a sports bike looks more like a scooter but then its a teaser it'll be an entire range of mille look alikes from 50cc 125cc 250cc track bike 450 and 550 to sit alongside all the other lovely bikes lol hope

    i wonder if they'll mave a factory version with olins and oz wheels oooo i want one of them more than a jap 600 that will be the bollox middle wheight and would really be a good investment as a lot of people will want them for the handling and the 'bling' of having gold and blue and brmbo radials and flush indicators and and pirrelli diablos and radial master cylinder and and oooh i'm exited hope it aint more than the jap bikes i'd pay bout 4000 for one tops not shelling out much more unless its really nice
