What's with the 600s yellow fairing/front end and the silver tail section? Did two different design teams split up the styling? Cripes, go with yellow or silver, but not both!

That's my point exactly. It just seems like more than a coincidence that these companies found reasons to have anniversaries the same year as H-Ds 100th.



I mean the Road Star is silver and has special badges on it? Come on now.

Let's see...

H-D = Black and Silver, special badges.

Yamaha = Silver, special badges.

Default Yargh! Ugly bikes ahoy, matey!

I like the way they paired the gold wheels with that too.



Reminds me of my friend's 600 katana: Teal, with blue and flourescent orange graphics and blue wheels. Suzuki needs to hire a color consultant.



The Busa is fugly. The UK got a black framed Hayabusa with silver and black paint. Now that would look cool.



Ah well, at least if they get in an accident, they can't use the "I never saw him" excuse...no jury in the world is going to believe that once they see either of these two bikes.

It's also interesting that they chose the GSX-R600 instead of the 1000.

That used to be the commentary on Jaguars. You never had to change the oil because after 3000 miles you would have replaced it all anyway!
