New enduro bikes with classic look?

Oberdan Bezzi, an Italian designer is proposing to have enduro bikes with up-to-date frames , engine , suspensions .... but with the classic look of seventies/eighties.

My opinion : a very good idea and gorgeous results, but I grow and learned to ride with these bikes... so I'm partial ...



Husqvarna CR 450


BETA 400 Metal with suzuki dr engine

Cant argue with the pipe comment. A scrambler pipe, I think, would look awesome.

Put a license plate on that Husky and I would buy my first brand new bike since 1986. I like it like that just fine. But a round air cleaner and alloy rims would make that a 10 out of 10 for me. I like the look of the Beta but don't want to do the air cooled motor again. The Husky manages the look without the low tech.

My 2006 TE610 Husky looks like that drawing except for the tank and seat, I would bet I could find a tank and seat and figure out a way to do that which would be friggin sweet, even though I love the way my Husky looks now, that would be super sweet!

Do they handle like bricks the way the old bikes they're patterned after did?

If I'm dropping 8 grand on a new dirt bike, it's not going to be on one that "looks vintage 1980's". If you want an old one, go find an old one.

That'd be like dating Marissa Miller and having her grow a huge bush.

Some like "not groomed" , anyway there's no problem in finding 2010 models with 2010 looks...



The last one , specially for U.S. ..

What part of "with up-to-date frames , engine , suspensions..." Did you not understand?

I like wide flat seats, metal tanks and rear fenders that go down rather than straight back. Which is why that Husky looks right to me. That would be a nice modern bike minus the shit KTM passes off for seats and a tank that is ....well.... pretty.
