Upon making a bike racer I found an odd comparison. CRB's Suzuki Mirage has 2 more points of armor and is half the price of R5's Yamaha Kaburaya. Neither have any bells or whistle, and both have the same stat line sans armor. 

Am I going crazy or are we to pay a 100% markup for the latest's shiny toy with one third less armor?
Yeah, TMs got thrown in the cell with Bubba the Love Troll and sandpaper for lube.

Sometimes, you pay for style. Other times from brand names.

Pricing doesn't always reflect the base stats of an item.

Real life case in point:  ALL Apple products.
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

The German Rigger 5 contains changed stat lines for the Kaburaya.
It now costs the same as the Mirage and has acceleration 4 compared to the Mirage's 3

but by Fluff the Kaburaya is extremely loud and easily recognisable (it's alway screaming : Here I am ) ,so any Runner should avoid it

Sounds like something the errata team should take a gander at when it reaches Rigger 5.0.
Would you want to go into a place where the resident had a drum-fed shotgun and can see in the dark?

Honestly, the Errata team should just take whatever went into the German translations and publish that as their first step, full stop...

I'd rather they didn't just dump German rules into English books, tbh. AFAIK, there's still stuff like Raven not quite dropping to 0.5PP like every other mentor spirit, or the question of whether 1000*rating is the right way to go about rebalancing skilljacks.
