No double standard. Just don't make a bike that is horrifically ugly from every conceivable angle. They did.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While I happen to think the most beautiful engine ever made is the H-D Knuckle, I also think the style of the Vision is fetching. Personally, I like the Jetson styling. I'm not in the market for a luxo-tourer but if I were, I would at least consider the Vision.

It's a Sk@nk Pulley. Until you plop down 20 large for one, 'fetching' don't mean shyt. They need to get that thing a facelift pronto.

It is said Mark Blackwell was wearing his wooden clogs that John Penton gave him to a Viceroy board meeting and the boss liked the style of those "shoes" so much he wanted the new Visagoth to copy the lines somewhat. Then Blackwell un-zipped his pants and flopped his choder out on the table; "Anyone want a piece of this?" Blackwell proudly quipped, as the accounting lady screamed, and then passed out.

That Balckwell's some dang fine sh!t can executive. Funny too.

Yeah, but I've already had three beers and a double of Maker's Mark, so...
