What's the ugliest bike ever built?

Among the masses of brilliant and beautiful bikes available there are also some real monstrosities. Below we've managed to come up with what we think are some of the ugliest bikes ever built. Which do you think is the worst? pollcomment

So many examples of aesthetic wrongness to choose from, although some may disagree!

  • Amazonas
  • Ner-A-Car
  • Vincent Black Prince
  • Morbidelli V8
  • Honda CX500
  • Victory Vision Tourer
  • Buell CR1125
  • Any adventure bike!

Tiger 800!!!!!! I'm cut to the bone. My Tiger 800 is no Mona Lisa but theres lots more far worse pig scarers out there (see below). I'm going in the garage to give it a reassuring hug!

There's no ugly bikes-only the people looking at them

disgusting Diavel

It’s easily the Ducati Diavel, that bike is disgusting both visually and ergonomically, and a waste of a superb engine. And people pay loads of £ to add carbon fibre to em to make em look even more disgusting. Puuuuke, thanks gawd we only see them on the August Bank Holiday.

R1200ST Owner

Yes - I bought a 2005 - blue/black and still have it. 32,000 miles, 55mpg plus and would but another one today but 0nly if same colour or all black. Those light grey/champagne colours make it look like a cross between a scooter and the RT.

Totally comfortable all day, nimbler than the RT and better than the GS for getting through traffic congestion being smaller frontal area. Dual headlights in low and high beam as standard are superb.

I'm amazed there's no mention of bikes from earlier years when the question is "what's the ugliest EVER?". Surely the Munch bike from the 1970s is a very serious contender. Then there's the Ariel Leader from the 1960s. That really was a stinker. The bikes in MCN's shortlist are all young shiny skinned beauties by comparison, with the exception of Honda's DN-01 which must have been a drug induced marketing experiment. Now if they'd made it a trike straight out of the box, they'd have got away with it and possibly sold more than two dozen.
