I'm impressed with the individual O2 sensors for each cylinder. Is that just for the initial tune?

I bet it'll be an amazing 636, but $21,500?? Damn! I just saw a guy on TDJ Yard Sale asking that exact price for a Panigale V4 with not many miles on in excellent condition. I'd rather have that for that kind of money even if it's mostly stock.

Tru Tru. . . but its at a great price for its target audience (pros or people with a lot of cash lying around lol), especially if it has the magic numbers for geometry/ setup and everything sorted out.

I really like how clean the rear sets are. Nice design.

15 days from order? How much engine work is done? Is this a crate racing motor?

Just going over what I can see, bodywork, exhaust, electronics, rear sets, suspension, brakes, safety wire, fluids, initial purchase..... That doesn't sound too far off the mark. Toss in the tires, the tune..... If that includes a detailed (blueprinted race spec) engine, whatever transmission work may have been done....

Oh yeah, I know where the cost is coming from. I know if someone was to do this all on their own starting with a brand new bike and getting new parts, it would cost upwards of $17k, and graves has to make some money too since there's labor involved. I've already seen similarly built new R6s with a similar asking price. It's just hard for me to imagine spending that much for a 600, no matter how good it is. The last 600 I bought (my zx6r, which was a pretty well sorted bike with lots of aftermarket parts on), I spent $4000 on it lol

Its very cool, however the up charge on some stuff, I could probably do it for a third of the price. The real money maker is tuning all of those things to get power. Anyone can buy and install brake lines, PCV's, rear sets, clip ons.

Bikes like these are for squeezing out the last 1% of performance out of the motorcycle. This bike was built to beat other well built 600s, while following the MA rule book. So comparing it to a Duc V4 doesn't make much sense because they aren't built for the same purpose. Most of us won't buy bikes like these because we don't have a need to find every advantage available to beat the country's best racers on equivalent machinery.

I would buy one of these if I had my eye on a club championship or something, but other than that why bother for sure.

Exactly, which is exactly why I said I'd rather by a V4 for that money lol Because I'm not racing in MotoAmerica Supersport.
