That top street fighter is actually pretty sweet.

However the cruiser one sucks. Why would you go from a single rear shock to dual side mounted ones?

It goes to show how generic alot of bikes are now. I mean, sportbike designs are so similar now, its rediculous. I'm not saying its bad, but they all share a very common architecture. Aluminum frame. std triple tree and suspension setup. stacked trans asm that is part of the engine case. These pics could just as easily be Suzuki's or Honda's.
Where is the innovation anymore?
I understand that current bikes are ridiculously efficient at everything they are designed for, but there's very little soul anymore, you know, real character. There are very few machines that really spark an interest for me anymore. I'm bored with bikes like these "custom Hyosungs" cause their all the same anymore. Chop the tail, custom exhuast, headlight, fat tire/stretched and a fancy paint job.

I fart in their general direction. Unoriginal, not impressed...

Just cause they started with a Hyosung doesn't mean chit. That bike was benchmarked from the big jap manufacturers. So it might as well be a Suzuki.
Don't get me wrong, the bikes are ok for what they are, but what they are is typical.

just my

wtf?

form follows function. that's how sportbikes evolve. everything else becomes ornamental.
individual taste dictates design. that's how sportbikes become customs...and not everyone has the same taste.

bikes don't have soul. evil bikes don't go to hell.
character is very subjective. what kind of characteristics are you looking for?

generics are good, it makes the price affordable...
