Don't you see the DNA?,the Vision is another Arlen Mess.

He has talent no doubt but has gone over the edge many times in the past.
I'll give him credit for being willing to take a chance by being different.

The buel 1125. After all the hype, they release a motorcycle that looks like it has an old woman's bingo-wings side cowls and a goiter exhaust.

Any BMW or Moto Guzzi cruiser...wtf were they thinking. While I too, don't think too highly of the Buell 1125r (as if it matters now, anyway...), I do believe they would of sold a shit ton of 'em if they were not so butt friggen ugly. How about normal front brakes, chain drive, a more conventional exhaust and a front faring more like a CBR600rr (instead of a alien from another world) and the bike would of been money. I was so ready for Buell to stick it to the big 4, but in turn, they committed the cardinal sin by making the 1125r ugly! People shelling out 11 large for a new sled say looks matter, just ask any one riding a R1 or a 1098-1198.

Also, anyone who disses ZX10r's are just to pansie-assed to ride them!!

Funny, you just quoted all the things I *LIKED* about the 1125r...

Really, well over 700lbs wet weight and under 45hp at the crank. Very top-heavy to boot.

Re: Victory Vision
I put 600mi on one in a weekend doing a mix of riding. I'd take it as a cruiser-type-touring machine (BMW LT/Goldwing/Electraglide/etc) over just about anything else out there. Great overall package, though the looks do scream Buck Rogers.

I love all motorcycles. The old quote "They are pizza and sex. Some are just better than others."

Hey, have you seen the Suzuki TU-250x? None were imported for '10, but there are a few '09s around. Beautiful little retro bike with fuel injection and a nice red fade to black paint job. I couldn't buy another bike for fear of ending up single, otherwise...

I'd ride a Katana if someone gave me one. The DN-01, nope. Wouldn't be caught dead on it. That's saying something when most of the time my attitude is "If it has an engine, two wheels and brakes, I'll ride it."

Maybe it's the bug-eyed look of the katanas and the fizzers. I like them both and have not yet had the opportunity to ride either one.

I think most motorcycles have their place even Katanas, DN-01s, Runes & Harleys.
All the above are quality well made motorcycles.
All motorcycles do not appeal to all riders, that is why there is such a variety of bikes on the market.
Most motorcycles appeal to me. If I could I would own dozens of them!

AS far as the worst motorcycles in the last decade I have to say the Chinese junk that is peddled to an unsuspecting public. Wether it is UM, Johnny Pag Lifan or any other brand generaly if it's made in China it is crap!

Wow ! lot's of opinions and some pretty decent bikes are chalked up as a POS .

Any bike over 500 lbs , less than 120 hp , with a wheelbase over 57" . That kills alot of bikes

I love Suzuki's but the B-King is just a huge uglyass pile !

BMW's huge 1200cc wanna be offroad bike .

Any current Jap cruiser trying to look and sound like a Harley .

I think it's a toss up between a Hoysung or a Ural .
