I really like the frame and swingarm on this bike, but the radiator covers are less than pleasing. They're a little BMW 650 or 1200. Anyway, the headlight cluster has got to go. I love that they upped the displacement, I think I could grow to love the thang. Bet she sounds purty good too.

I like the overall lines, but it's a bit overbaked to my eyes. Not a fan of the "windscreen" or the radiator shrouds. Love the swingarm, subframe design and the look from a rear 3/4 view. A few too many "baroque-industrial" doodads. I like what they were going for, but they should have stopped designing at about the 3/4 mark. The licence plate/rear fender assembly is an abomination as they are on most bikes, but this one looks particularly bad. Definitely a candidate for a fender eliminator kit--or a nice sharp hacksaw.



The Brutale and Raptor pull of the same general look in a more tasteful refined manner.



Sounds like an asskicker, though. I could probably get used to the looks, too.



Oh, and "TNT" is a really dumb name.

You sure it's not your Yorkie that gives you a woody?



Just checking.
