And here’s the new naked that’s coming with a supercharger and various geometry changes. We’ve had the patent drawings for this bike and other than what you see here it’s pretty much a tweaked Er-6n but with styling points taken from the Z800 with the bolt-in engine bits to boost power – but the Japanese are saying that this bike is also going up in capacity to sit in the 800cc bracket:
