One more...

And I have to agree with the general opinion here on the looks...

I visited their website and for all the hype and fawning over their advanced, pushing the boundaries, extraordinary vision, etc, etc, "utilizing a holistic, avant-garde process for celebrating the art of rebellion" something just looked yawningly familair about the bike and it struck me..... I put "bauhaus" into google image and found the following....



...real "avant-garde"

So, once again, a U.S. motorcycle maker decides to shake the world up with a "cutting edge" product, reassembles off the shelf parts with all sort of machined billet bling, and lifts design straight out of art history 101 textbooks. Go team.

They certainly got the girl right anyway.

Maybe not old, but definitely retro, from the Japanese Guzzi rally -
