That's something that I love about my ninjette. I can pin the throttle, be quickly shifting through the gears and making the bike scream yet be barely over the speed limit. It's a lot of fun.

The rider is as nuts as the bike.

Did you guys notice he was really forcefully yanking his weight around on the bike? I'm guessing that's what it takes to manoeuvre it. I bet it's hard work.

Maybe for a stock bike, but he has an Area P. Switching to one of those mufflers would likely be a downgrade in performance, sound (Area P's sound awesome!) and build quality.
