i'm referring to bikes like the Fireblade from Honda. I was wondering if kawa/suzu/yama had similiar type bikes. A friend of mine over here is looking to get a supersport and wants a bike similiar to the fireblade but doesn't like honda for personal reasons. I was thinking there was one for kawasaki called the raven but that might be a color scheme... or a yamaha.. lol thanks for any help! :)

You might be remembering the Muzzy Raptor. I don't think Kawasaki officially made those tho. I think that was all done through Muzzy.

Honda made a tatoo edition of the new 600rr and a tribal edition for the previous one...They were both arse. Yamaha has a Yellow flame R6 this year that looks awesome. Kawi has a green 6R with green rims and chrome decals...Not sure if it is an SE though...Yamaha makes best SE IMO...The 50th Anniversary edition bikes looked awesome.

Suzuki made a beautiful one. The Suzuki GSXR600 Telefonica Movistar Edition. I love the color on it.

Didn't Honda offer a Repsol paint scheme? (I know your friend doesn't like Honda but that was pretty cool)

Any CBR100RR is a Fireblade. not really special. Kawi has a '08 special edition ZX6R (black with red wheels/fork, and chrome decals) and ZX14 (flat black with red frame/swing arm).
Yamaha's only special edition for '08 is the R6 in Cadmium yellow with flames.
Honda has a special ed Graffiti CBR600RR and a metallic/gray CBR1000RR.

1098 Tricoloure anyone? Now if only I had $16,000 to waste on a motorcycle.
Oh and maybe a Desmosedici RR, but I think I might buy a 'vette first. :)

Meh, I'm seriously looking at the MV 910....Ducks aren't very much fun for me anymore.

Now, I just need to take a 910 on a test ride and compare it to my R6.....

Exactly, the Honda Fireblade is the european name for our us spec Honda CBR's The only special editions from honda at the moment is the reposol I believe, I don't really know about any of the other manufactures bikes.the best way would be to either do a web search or visit some dealerships.
