Wow, looks really....ummm... plain. I don't know, I guess I expected some kind of brand recognition or something. This is kind of a plain Jane generic look to it...

Nice bike I'm sure though..

I think it looks better in the GT version, without the top case. That red color looks pretty schnazzy.

What do you want to bet this bike wins next year's version of the Iron Butt Marathon?

I have to agree on the plainness.

However, an I6 is gonna feel mighty sweet on the road.

I had a horrible CL flashback when I first saw the L version. At least no tarantula headlights.

Looks surprisingly like a DN-01.

Default Needs a Six

You need a six at 700+ lbs. The GT looks best.

I think it's going to put a serious dent in Goldwing sales. Those guys are apparently immune to enormous BFU bikes.

They should release a production version of the concept bike. Now that bike was was the schnizz.
