  • Streetfighters

    I am thinking of getting a streetfighter as a city summer commuter(gsxr750). They have good seat/handle bar position, 0-60 around 3 seconds(madness), and 40mpg (5.8L/100km); a prius gets 50mpg.

    What are your views on having a streetfighters?

    This is a streetfighter:

    Its a sportbike with no fairing and added weight reduction with different front suspension and handlebars. They are supposed to look more aggressive and are easier to do wheelies and stuff on.
    Mx5 NA (1.6L)
    Impreza ('95 2dr)
    Chrysler 300C (3.5L)

    JDM bro.

      That looks more like a naked bike. If you're buying a bike that has been converted to street fighter (or became naked), it's most likely because the owner crashed it and can't afford to repair or replace the fairings. For that reason, it's probably not a good idea to buy one. And if you're riding a GSXR750, you don't need any help doing wheelies; The thing already has heaps of power!

        If you want to do it on the cheap, the earlier oil cooled GSXR's make great street fighters.
        With the fairing removed they look nice and clean, no extra bits hanging off the sides.

        I have the 88 model that is popular for the SF treatment, the alloy cradle frame really shows of the motor.

        It is not my preference to have a street fighter but I really like the look for them and I can see the appeal.

            Wait, so you want to get a gsxr750 and convert it to a streetfighter thing? Isn't the gsxr750 a sport bike with a fairing?

            As far as opinions go on streetfighter style bikes go, one of the best looking bikes in my opinion is the old Buell XB9SX. Sure it makes very little power and shook a lot and had lovely HD reliability...but it looked soooooo cool.



            I will never forgive HD for what they did to Erik Buell.

              F4i's are already incredibly popular in the stunting scene. Why not just buy a new street bike if that's what you want then convert your F4i into a stunter? Change the rear sprocket if it doesn't have enough oomph

                    Sorry what I meant was it looks similar to a GSR750. Might be a better alternative to getting a GSXR and taking the fairings off.

                      I too also see "Streetfighters" as modded bikes. A bit like Café Racers.

                      Some bikes might have that stance stock, as naked or semi-naked offerings, but they'd still be classed as a "sports" category bike or whatever.

                        Im going to be a prude here and say of all the bikes ive owned the Ducati was the worst.
                        Both for build quality and service.

                        And its not a streetfighter.... That is ^

                          Like others said a 'Streetfighter' is a faired bike thats had the fairings ripped off, usually after a crash. A Naked bike is one that came from the factory with no fairings, wiring looms hoses etc. are usually well thought out and kept neat on these, where as a streetfighter can be painful to make it look tidy. The first photo in the thread is a naked bike called a Ducati Streetfighter incidently. Hope this helps.

                            What bikes were you looking at? just the 750? Have a look at bikes that are already naked like Honda hornet 919 or something like that. Heaps of room for customization you can put a different headlight on it or whatever you want. Or you can be boring and buy a factory streetfighter like the Ducati in your pic :P

                              the original term street fighter came from the uk and im led to believe.... they were bikes that had minor damage that the owner couldn't afford to repar or didn't want to so they yanked bits off and stuck Cheap Replacements on, so getting a new headlight from a bike savage place. Me being picky I would argue My 125 cbr is more of a street fighter than The bike you posted a picture of.... I dont have a problem with any bike make,Type,scooter, I do have a problem with you calling a Ducati street fighter a "streetfighter" It has streetfighter styling (Debatable) But it is very much a Off the shelf toy, Streetfighters are custom bikes that someone has put work into to make personal..... Its like saying a stock ferrari is the same as a worked R34.
