Found these in my travels around the internet and thought I would share them. Ugly or a work of art...you decide -





My thoughts? They could lose the headlight and exhaust and some of the plastic garbage cluttering up the bike and you would have a pretty bad ass nekkid bike. Speed Triple headlight assembly and a short round GP type exhuast would look cool

:shrug: Overall I like it, but the exhaust and headlight are both fugly. Kinda looks like a watered down BKing.

I like it.. (I would have to do a lot of Patron shots to get past that color) over all it looks decent. The headlights look like a scaled down version of Suzuki standard headlights.

I like the silver.
The mirrors and can need to be changed. I think a slick hi mount exhaust would look sweet.
The headlight reminds me of Transformers. I like it overall tho, resembles the B-king

Better looking than the Z1000. Bar end mirrors would be a must on any naked. Hope it is priced right when it does arrive!

its like a blend of VFR, a little CBR, some CB, and a lot of unique stuff. I really like it. but I agree, it needs a high mount pipe.

I like it except for the headlight (looks like the bking piece of chit) and the exhaust (wtf is that thing)...

Marko, it IS coming to the US.

Here's a shot my buddy took at the recent bike show in Milan, Italy:
