The fact that they didn't even consider a 2001 ZX6r shows this panel was rigged.

I'm soooo disappointed that my Suzook Madura 1200 wasn't considered...

Where's the KLR, where's the Concours, where's the VFR, where's the SV650....?

What's the criteria?
 
It doesn't say. Did they only consider new, currently available machines? Or did they consider the entire history of motorcycles? If so, how could they have overlooked the Ducati 916 ??

No way... Since you asked, the top ten most beautiful bikes of all time are:



1. '04 Moto Guzzi Coppa Italia



2. '72 Bultaco 250 Pursang



3. '73 Husquvarna 380 cr



4. '05 Yammaha R1



5 '73 Triumph Trident



6 '78 Harley-Davidson Low Rider FXE



7 '87 BMW K75S



8. '83 VFR750 Intercepter



9. '68 BSA 441 Victor



10. '47 Harley Davidson FL Knucklehead.





There's plenty more but those are the ones that made me think "now that's what they're supposed to look like.." the first time I saw them.

The Black 2006 R1, has my vote!

The Motard is indeed a knockout. I can't wait to see it in person....as for top ten of all time...here is my stab in no particular order:



1. 1914 Cyclone or 1915 Indian 8-V Board Track bikes...they have the same esthetics, so both!



2. late Indian Chief sans fako fringe.



3.Vincent Series C Black Shadow



4.Early Gen HD Sportster '57 or so.



5.BSA Gold Star in Clubman trim



6.Velocette Venom



7. Norton Commando -any year as long as in black.



8. Early HD XR750



9. Duc 750SS - green frame, natch!



10. BMW R90S - my choice is Daytona Orange.



I wouldn't read much - if anything - into the lack of current stuff. I think it takes a lot of time to absorb and determine what endures.



On a different day and in a different mood, my list WOULD be different.



oh, honorable mention:

Bultaco Alpina or Metralla

Any pre-unit Triumph

916 and/or any Monster

BMW R32

Naked early 70's MV 750's

Any orange Laverda

Yes, he said almost with some reluctance - the original Katana...yes, I confess...I still like it.



If my mood changes today - most likely since business email is distressingly active today - I may be back with more choices extracted from my nether regions.

The Hypermotard is a stunner in person.

Looks a little heavy to me.
 
But that Duc doesn't have any carbon fiber !
