So who is the market for this? Will it be mass-produced and at competitive pricing, or 20/year at $xx,xxx a copy?

I think it's ugly, but then again, I ride a VStrom, so who am I to talk?

Its.......A FACT!

This looks like an answer to a question nobody was asking.

For you, that would even happen with a BMW boxer twin. (JK!)

It reminds of the new VFR from the side and a KTM from the front -- a hodge-podge design... that works. The only real thing missing are engine guards. Goodness knows you don't want to drop that thing on its side without 'em!

You're being kind.

And at least assholes have a raison d'etre.

I just bash my shins into the heads on boxers when coming to a stop. Takes about 10 stops before I manage to remember, then the next time I ride one, 10 more... Hence not wanting a GS1200 but an 800 or a KTM instead.

Ugly I concur.
