Well,i'm sorry but i'm DISAPPOINTED.
This bike had all the(on paper i mean)right things going for it.Massive rear tyre,engine and apparently funky,agressive looks!
Rubbish!!!Ducati have missed the boat on this one but only just.Take those hideous BUELL like shrouds off the tank,PLEASE! It makes the bike look ABSURD!
I mean the top shroud connected with the tank looks STUPID!
I think whoever designed the tank got to the front,didn't know where too go from there and decided to tack on some plastic.All this bike needs is the tank to be redesigned and the shrouds to be minimalised as radiator shrouds,not carbuncles,come on man!
This bike would have looked ACE without them, well alright, a bigger version of the new Monster but so what!
They could have called it the OGRE,or SUPER MONSTER or IL COLOSSO!!!
Suzuki did the same thing with the B-KING.The tank/shrouds combo,make that bike look like something between JUDGE DREDD'S bike and a 50's CADILLAC.JEEZ!!!
No,sorry,but YAMAHA'S V-MAX wins the day for going in the right direction where looks are concerned.
