I'm sure they are fun to ride and all, but really not my thing.
I know where you're coming from on that The bike has a few too many extra bits on it, fortunately though, many of them can be modified and/or removed. I'd likely go with a black bike, and replace the exhaust with matt black pipes, powder coat the wheels, tuck the HUD into the light cowl and try to clean it up a bit.
I've been torn between a 109R, or a GSX-R600 for a while now. I love the looks and the speed of a R bike, but I would be doing a lot of distance traveling and I just can't see a R bike being comfortable enough for long rides.
The thing about that 109 though...that is one ridiculously powerful bike.
