I think I need his scale for my bathroom.

Not buying the 451.  If it had CF wheels, fairings (including tank), and sub-frame, it might be close.  Pretty sure thats a TI pipe.

He said this is how he did it and yeah, he's full of it. The wheel's aren't even aftermarket

 

Mainly by removing the central stand (4.5 kg) and by replacing the rear sub-chassis (in carbonsteel) with the Fireblade unit in aluminium
Moreover, the wheels are significantly lighter, as well as the Li-Ion battery (with the battery only I saved 3kg!!)
The braking system is much lighter
The swingarm also is lighter
The handlebars are in carbonfiber, as well as the tank cap
The stock fork yokes are in steel, very heavy; the fireblade fork yoke is in aluminium. The top yoke is superlight
The ignition key holder (with the antitheft system) has been totally removed
The titanium Akra exhaust in the place of the stock unit saves a lot of weight
The passenger footrests are off
Etc etc etc...
