Until all the Beak Heap is long past and forgotten, I'm perfectly ok with the KLV. What's the use in having the best bike in the world if it makes you hurl your lunch when looking at it? I know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and that many will find it ok, athers maybe good looking! No offence. The above is just my opinion.
It is just that I witnessed a couple of decades , in which bikes evolved both looks and specifications. Always the new was better in both aspects than before, and always there were few who thought othrwise , but the majority was thinking like me.New was faster, safer, and better looking.
Now with the New V-strom, maybe the rule "new is better" applies to the specs department, but when it comes to looks, it is a HUGE step back.
