Thumbs down. The original was much nicer and more practical.
1. Bars way too low. Who could ride it like that?
2. Front fender way too small. Road crap all over engine and front of bike.
3. No rear fender. Road crap all over rear of bike and all over rider's back!!!

1. A young in shape person, hipster.
2. No one gives a dookie about practicality in a bike like this, it's like looking at a really really hot woman. Yes you'll want it, it's not about keeping anything clean. It'll never see mud.
3. See answer to #3

Ditto brother.

It's not just a little bit daft comparing the two in terms of practicality etc, but completely misses the point
As a denizon of planet genuine retro, this creation is one of the very few 'modern' bikes that gives me a white moment.

Design wise this takes too little from the r90s and too much from the mh900e
But concept wise and the fact that the stupid front end has been dumped is awesome.

Give the bike the same state of tune as a hpsport and it would be great.

I could do with the Roland touches on the covers but I'm not a big "billet" fan.

I like the look of it. Pity that minimal rear end would be illegal in Australia, they'd have to put an ugly big mudguard round the rear wheel.

The steering head looks too high and un-supported.

Ditto again. This is motorcycle art, over which we shall drool. Practicality? Get a GS.

This bike is not to my taste thus is unequivocally awful and shall judge others that like it.


...

Swap the wheels for spokes and i'd say it was sorted.
