It's very tempting, but I'll just admit it- I'm worried about breaking my body at the track.

I really like the MT07 in every way, except how it looks. I think it's the ugliest of the middleweight nakeds, but the best to ride. I'm pretty tempted to buy it anyways, but I can't help but wonder...

How tall is this engine, and will it fit under the hood? 60 degree V6 engines are typically taller than the LS engines, and would be considerably taller than the FA20.

Aren't the B-series reverse rotation engines? I think you'd have 6 reverse speeds and one forward if you tried to mate it to the FR-S transmission.
