Ahhh, the looks will grow on you. Besides, when you're riding a bike, you can't really see much of it...its just everyone else that has to put up with it...
Maybe so, but if you look at all of the Porsche race cars, they regress back to more oil cooling. Plus the last of the oil cooled 911's are still considered the most collectible as they were the pinnacle of the development. None of these companies are going to H20 cooling for better performance, it's all about emissions.
