Re: [St] New spec for 2008 1050 ST

A lot of magazines seem to pan bikes that you can't fit a magnetic  
tank bag to. And I've never heard a rider complain about having too  
much lighting. Both seem reasonable responses to keeping the customer  

I don't think either of these mods mean they are using cheaper bits.  
I'm sure the metal tank is more expensive to manufacture.

As to your first question, this is the first I've heard of any  
changes on the 2008.
