Too easy. Headlights look like a CBR to me. Wind tunnel desigh at its best.

I was very vocal in my criticism of the 999, particularly the awkward profile and bumpy side fairings (and the weird 3rd eye).



But this bike has no visceral appeal. The smooth fairings are nice, but the headlights are a Japanese design.



At least the 999 was distinctive, and grew better with time. This bike will be forgotten.

I'm 49 JB. I wouldn't have any problem with military service. I was very close to joining Navy ROTC right out of HS. Wanted to fly jets. I chose to be a firefighter instead. It was one or the other. During Vietnam my brother joined the Army and served 2 tours with the 101st Airborne Div. in 67 and 68, which is why I also thought about military service. I spent 17 years putting my life on the line in public service. How about you?

Well, I guess we'll see your heros in action real soon. Come back next year and tell us all they get accomplished.

In the US and A, thanks to aging riders and dumb-ass speed limits, the plastic crotch rocket is dead. Hypermotard and stuff like that is the future, grasshoppah... KTM 950, stuff like that. I think...
