I have mixed feelings about it. Besides the fact that the title is misleading...the bike itself looks...I don't know...overdesigned. It looks alien and jaggy.

Different...and cool...but just not as sexy as the bikes we know. Maybe in a different color?

I wouldn't go as far as say it's ugly, for sure overly complex. Designers and engineers definitely got a hold of the good shit when they drew up this plan . Could you imagine how it would be to clean all those nooks and crannies. They list it with monster in the title so it gets more hits on ebay, doubt anyone is looking for this bike in particular.

ehh instantly when a bike is listed by a bike that its not, i would get turned off.

like me listing my F4 honda there, and putting it under the heading GSXR 1000!!! just so more people look. b.s. plain and simple.

either way i still think its ugly. i have never been a fan of nekkad bikes.

Mopar, you obviously didn't read the chapter in your Ducati owner handbook where it states that all bikes designed and built in Italy will be treated with nuetral regard. Look at Bugs response, he made a statement without directly offending anything Italian. You have much to learn.
