Anything with a v-twin will look derivative, or even similar to other offerings.
How about an 8?

A chromier Victory V-Twin with some gewgaws would be perfectly fine for the Indians and make economic sense. Those buyers want valanced fenders and the Indian head.

Default An Art Collector Not A Motorcyclist

The MV collector says, "we see no benefit to using it (the 125 GP racer)." Any real motorcyclist would love to hear that thing fire up and take a ride even if it's a parade lap. Motorcycles were meant to be ridden. Count Agusta wouldn't even let this guy in the door.

Motorcycles can be looked at AFTER they are ridden!

Exactly. Every show should be a ride in show. If only from the parking lot.

If it can't be ridden, it is a worthless pile of metal.

I remember in college when I mentioned going to a WWII warbird show. A classmate asked if I worried that these irreplaceable aircraft might crash and be gone forever. I said, "If it's not flying, it's just sculpture."
