Make it ugly or at least pointlees

Is there a competition between manufacturers that we don't know about to produce the most pointless or ugly machines?

Why else would so many of them seem so intent on producing truly heinous abominations of motorcycles?

The Hesketh scores extremely highly in the pointless category and isn't far behind in the latter. Taking the highest score for fugliness must be the new Suzuki Vstrom 1000. What on earth happened there?

Nostalgia

They are trying to play the nostalgia branded card with the two wheel equivalent of a badly refurbished stately home. We all have a soft spot for the glory days of British motorcycles but the original Hesketh wasn't one of them. These days you really need to go for a very upmarket niche with some really good tech behind you like Norton or just be good enough to compete head on like Triumph. I suspect this will be very heavy and rather gutless to ride.
