I don't know ... I'm thinking some of the latest crop of BMW's are rather unattractive, actually.

I never thought the Strom was ugly, but I agree that Victory screwed up BIGTIME with that design. Nothing classic looking with that bike, it looks like an over designed nightmare.

Sorry, understand I don't think the Strom is ugly. I love my Strom more than my $25,000.00 HD Classic. Perfect bike to have all around fun and a great "Twist and Grin" motorcycle.

Just some people think the Strom is UGLY, well that Victory is what I call UGLY.

C'mon guys...Pretty soon our V-Stroms will be the most elegant beauties on the planet, at this rate.

When I first saw the V-Strom I didn't think it looked too good. When I rode one, I knew I wanted one. Now that I have owned it for a few months, I think it is down right beautiful!
Look at this bike.
A THING OF BEAUTY!!!!! :mrgreen:

Well I'll stick in my .02. I think it's "neat". Futuristic, and somewhat radical. I have to admire designers who are willing to go someplace new and a company that is willing to put thier $ on the line. I would love to see it in person.

Now I'm not at all interested in owning one but it looks to me like it could give Goldwings and RoadKings some competition. Here are some other images:

BTW I never thought the Strom was an ugly bike. I'm not sure what I would call an ugly bike. I guess I've never seen one.

But what can you believe form someone who includes roadkill with each post :lol:
