Of course they'd build it on an existing platform - that's understood. But the styling, at least from the drawing, is more sporty and retro than any of the current offerings. The detail is lacking, so don't really know what to expect with the tank and the area in front of it. Will it have a radiator? (ugly) That's one of the things that turned me off about most of the newer Rs - the way the oil coolers were faired in making the tank look too fat in front.
But they show wire wheels, large round headlight and a cafe look. For the guys who won't or can't build a bike, but will buy a new one, this will possibly sell.
