Konica Minolta-replica FireBlade

On the left, the real thing. On the right, Brian's Konica Minolta-replica FireBlade...

Came across this rather interesting FireBlade on the PB mag forum and we think it looks quite all right! The Konica Minolta paintjob, done by Dream Machine, is a welcome break from the usual Repsol-replica colours. And yes, the owner has apparently spent quite a bit on doing up the bike.

The FireBlade features AP racing brakes, Ohlins rear shock, Ohlins internals for the front forks, Ohlins steering damper, K&N filter, D&D exhaust, various titanium bolts and… er, blue neon lighting. Brian, the owner, says the last bit is for ‘that all important 'bling' effect.’ More interesting is 129 horsepower which he claims the bike makes...
