other than the exhaust and the intake i agree it looks like a blast to ride. some people say that the intake is what defines the bike in this case but i don't like it.

I can see how the designer was trying to balance the intake and exhaust appearence, but the exhaust is just ugly, and overshadowing.

The intake is a trademark, and look good. The exhaust is just overwhelming the bikes looks.
