Trading the ZX-7R for a CBR929RR

Yeah, not exactly eco compared to most other bikes here....

But unlike the 7, the 929 has some technology like EFI and HTEV. HTEV is an exhaust valve built into the headers that varies the effective length to the collector and increases backpressure at lower revs. It is broken on this bike, but parts are ordered, so we will see how it works compared to the "old fashioned" ZX-7R. It sure is a lot quicker - 150 HP and 380 lbs dry.
