Pretty cool, I got to admit the exhaust is too big. Looks like they brought back the older style rims for this one, instead of the straight tri-spokes at first the 500+ lbs looks heavy, but in reality it is not, especially for a 1300cc bike. I could see myself buying this, Ill have to look at it in person.
I give it a B+. Perhaps just a B, though this kind of bike doesn't appeal that much to me on a personal level...not to take anything away from the concept of a hyper-naked bike (a la K1200R or even a modern tech CB1300...)
The tailsection/exhaust and headlight are really the only things that take away from the overall package, IMHO. And I could deal with the tailsection if the headlight didn't suck--perhaps if it had some complementary styling to the exhaust.

seriously tho, its a great looking bike. if they would of done something else with that exhaust. and that air intake. it would be a super slick looking bike.
Ha ha, this post reminded me of this:
"I'm gonna have a whoppa" Sorry, been a long day.......
Give it an oldschool GS1100 oversize single round headlight and I like it a ton more. They could have still put a flyscreen on it (maybe even quick release so you could take it on and off) to appease everyone who wants a windscreen.
Exhaust doesnt really do it for me either, but it doesnt kill the bike like the front fairing/light.

hmm, dead even with the non-ABS Kawi Concours 14. And the Connie has bags, adjustable windshield, and a comfortable seat.
Wow, I am getting OLD!
