No kidding. That swing arm is sick. I love how the chain passes through it. I wonder what the bill was for that bike.

Yeah, he's got to be floating in cash. Check out the Ferrari he owns next to the bike in one of the pics. He seems to like RED ;D

i like a bunch of stuff that was done to it, but i think the SSS looks too MV'ish. it's designed after the agusta's afterall... while an SSS looks cool as a general styling point, i'm pretty impressed by the braced aluminum swingarm febur is putting out for the '9. motowheels'll be selling them soon it seems:

personally,. I'm surprised this guy did not buy a 999R since he is loaded, then moded it from there. Not to mention full carbon panels too !

it's not that i don't think the swingarm looks cool, because it looks absolutely gorgeous on the agusta!! i just personally don't think it works for the 999...

Personally, I think the ultimate swingarm on a tubular, trellis framed bike, is a tubular, trellis SSS. But, I think the cast swingarm on this bike really is beautiful, but if it's the one I saw at Daytona, the finish on it was really rough.

You OK s4strati no need to panic, that is why your bike is black and my bike is red we all have different tastes.
