I like the look. It makes the wee look more of a dual sport bike and updates the look of the wee. Probably it might look better on a glee. But in the end it is all subjective to the individual. Add the tourtech front fender and knobbies and it completes the "look".

I don't get it. Apart from the look (which I'm not sure about) why is this a thing? Did someone, somewhere think, "Dang, my Strom just isn't ugly enough. What can I bolt on to make it even more different?"

I've made my peace with the V-Strom aesthetic, but I'll be damned before I voluntarily add more lipstick to my beloved pig.

I think it's more along the lines of "what can I bolt to my bike that makes it look more like the GS800 that I really wanted but didn't want to spend that much dough?".

I suppose that makes sense.



Don't think stretching the rake out is such a good idea though.

If it was a little better quality (looks cheap to me) and color matched, I may consider it. I would probably loose the front fender though and treat it more like a high mount fender and less like a beak. In the current state it's being advertised, I'll pass.

I had a power bronze belly pan on my old SV650 many years ago, and if the quality of this beak is anything like that belly pan, it's crap.

That must be the BMW extra low seat option.
