You need more than an Optician.
no, but i seriously think it is least worst looking. serious gag reflex stifling needed in either case.

besides, you're cheating; the pic you posted has nice accoutrements!

They're both ugly bikes. I'm sure the Diavel is a hoot to ride, but that doesn't make it pleasing to the eye.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, however, so enjoy the looks of the Diavel if it rubs your happy bone.

They had a thread in one the bike forums here, about ugly bikes, and the 990 adv got it's fair share of vote's. I ride one and have to admit it's been hit few times with the ugly stick. Diavel looks ok to me, haven't ridden one though.
Sorry, back to the Dragon.

Impossible! No bike can be uglier than a Vstrom.

Same curve as the Triumph/Corvette crash a few weeks ago, but I'm pretty sure this pic is much older.

Which way is forward ?

Interesting steering and anti-brake-wrap linkage and single shock turnbuckle. Guess that makes ride height adjustment easy...

Yeah this is from a series of the crash posted May 2009 but clearly is mid Sept or so if you notice the tree color. So maybe 2008
