I bought this for my 06 gsxr 750 and it came with laser etched name plates on the sides with a big "R". It looks pretty good, though from up close you can tell it's just a fake carbon pattern. I believe it's just a painted pattern, not hydrodipped. Why I wouldn't recommend this to a friend though is that one of the mounting holes snapped after my second ride! The bolt hole on the left side (above the chain) the plastic cracked and snapped off... terrible plastic quality if you ask me.
