The front end looks like a representation of the rider's facial expression when opening the throttle...

It looks like an episode of scrapheap challenge where the task was to fix a wardrobe to a motorbike.

I see they've used a Brabantia bin for the exhaust, I think I have the same one in the kitchen...

Every evolution makes my 990 look better & better - I can feel the value going up as I type...  :lala:

No wonder the test rider didn't want to be recognised!

I totally agree Wurzel, that motor. :lala:

I understand that the "open mouth" below the headlight contains the radar unit for the cruise control. But why for the the love of all things holy did the whole front of the bike have to be so f*ckin' ugly? The dustbin is for euro5, they've upped the power to 170 bhp. The new Multstrada V4 could have 200...

Just for the record the best looking bike in this segment is the CRF 1000. With GOLD wheels. :bow-blue:

Is that picture taken after the Crash Testing?

Maybe it came off the dyno and hit a wall?
