It won't bother you

If you'll be riding your K12S, you'll mostly see their tail lights, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Ergh, I don't know... Symmetrical lights make it look duller if not dumber. I do dig asymmetrical designs of theirs.
+1, otherwise it looks like a suzuki,honda,yamaha, blah, blah
That's why i like my k12r, doesn't look like anything else :clap: :teeth

Seriously... what were they smoking???
I with you Bro, I like simetry as well. But I think the reason for the asymmetry is due more for practical reasons than for cosmetic reasons. That split in the middle of the nose fairing means they can't use a single headlight assembly, and the regular riding lamp needs to be pointed in the right direction, for which the lens needs to be shaped differently.

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the these bikes in England have the headlamps configuration swapped.

This is just conjecture on my part. Any optic or light experts in the house?
