I give them credit for thinking "out of the box" not another HD clone! I personally like anything that is dramatically different and this qualifies. That being said, I don't think I'll be trading my K for one!

People are always ragging on ugly bikes and I usually don't get it. In some way, I like most of them I see, and consider my own K1200R ugly in a cute pit-bull ugly way.

Having said that, the above bike is the most unappealling, embarassingly appalling two-wheeled item I've ever seen. Fell out of a very tall ugly tree and got gashed open by every thorny branch on the way down, landing in the fugly mud puddle. And that's an understatement.

Nicely put. And while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, this one takes the biscuit!
