I suspect this is very true.
I think the uglier I think a bike is, the more they will sell.
The younger people want transformers with all sorts of gizmo's on them.
I think I could make a huge amout of money for these companies, if I was to rate a bike a 1 on a 0 to 10 style scale, they would be SURE to sell millions of them. A 9 or 10, forget about it.

I guess Harley sucks up most of the vintage look people, and leaves none for any Japanese brands.
When I was riding my old Triumph around, the Harley guys would all come over and tell stories about their old bikes, the sport bike guys would not give it a 2nd look.
But you won't find many Harley riders willing to trade their sled glide in on an sr400....
