Road Rocket's Earth mode is based on a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja ZX 10Rd.

From artist's notes:
I tried to stick very close to the toy design, and in fact imagine that about 85% of the transformation would be just like the original toy with a few small exceptions:

1. I moved the front of the bike/windscreen down to his chest: it wasn't doing much good floating above his head. Now he has a cool face shield thing!

2. I decided in order to make further efficient use of his parts (and get rid of his ridiculous backpack) that I would just make the Gas Tank of the bike split in two and become part of his leg transformation.
I also imagine that the license plate mount would fold up onto the back of his calves. Then the back part of the bike (where the tail-lamps are) spins around backward to become his "heels" and a foot flips out in the process... somehow.

3. The wheel struts no longer connect to his shoulders, but instead to his (now much smaller) backpack. This should free up some arm movement.

4. The forward "wheel well"/Wheel Cover (I don't know bike parts terms) no longer sticks awkwardly off the back of his right arm, but insteads spins and folds over the outside of the Chainsaw's motor housing.

5. The "Buzzsaw on a stick" is now a chainsaw, because I like chainsaws.

Road Rocket won't be alone in the more than one sense--see Override's files to get what we mean!

Superb! Very fluid pose. Love this design - especially the arm mounted chainsaw and those wheels on the back.

Excellent design. Love them ginormous wheels. And the windshield. And the corded chainsaw. And the pose is good too.
