I went out and bought a 2004 Mladin edition 1000!!! And by the way, the US versions are the same as that pic that is floating around with the ulgy ass exhaust. They also have three other colors too! I bought my new 1k at Chicago cycle center and the salesman already had the book on all the new gixxers!! Nice colors comming for the 600 and the 750, but the 1k is doomed. Trust me, I saw the finished product!
