Nicky Hayden Eddition faster?

I am sure there has been posts like this before but I thought I would see if I can get a quick response then put this thread to bed. I would expect my answer to be be the NH Edition is no different mechanically than any other SP2. BUT I just read on speedzilla someone say it was faster????

That was misguided correct? No mechanical difference just paint and stickers right?

Yeah the '04s are almost as fast as the '02s, but all those decals slow then down due to wind resistance.

He only believed, his 04' is faster, when he is pretending to be N. Hayden...

Yes the 03 is the fastest, but with the added stickers of the NH makes a close 2nd

Glad I could help

Ah ha just as I suspected the Woody Wood Pecker is worth 2.5 horse therefore making the 04 NH top speed the fastest of the bunch......... I knew it! The white paint on the tail also increases its handling characteristics truly making the 04 NH special a far superior bike that the rest. I am so glad we all have this straight now!

And the '02 won in '02, so the rest are just posers.
