So if they are numbered, what do you do when the case cracks?

If that's the last run of the V-Spec, what's it being replaced with?

Well love 'em or hate 'em, bone stock with a 2060 pipe and a good tune and they will still run with the best of them. Great motor.

Ya I dont see anything about the speed engines associated with the sill gold head. Although I do kinda like the gold head over the blue one.

I don't like the gold head. The speed head looks better (worlds)

Does anyone have any clue what is coming?



There is alot of improvments to be made on the vspec.

The O s V-Spec Pro Mod is such an excellent engine, it has all of the upgrades the v-Spec needs. That is the #1 best engine around right now in my opinion.

The Vspec has a shitty crankcase. Hopefully the new breed Vspec has the same case as the JX21.

In all honesty if a new V-Spec is coming how will they make it like the Ninja and keep the price under $300? The upgrades the V-Spec needs can be found on the Ninja. If the V-Spec is being replaced it will be interesting to see what the new mill will feature.

All they have to do is change the case. The JX21 is expensive because of the filled, DLC coated crank, not the case.....
