    Hmm... I'll definitely need to see that in person. I have a funny feeling that it just doesn't photograph right. Or maybe I'm just really wanting it to start growing on me.... sigh.:angry7: I miss the older VFR look, a la 4th and 5th gens.

    This was on my short list for '10, but alas nothing I see makes this bike look compelling. I'm sure it's a great bike and I'll be checking it out closer tomorrow.

    looks much better here than in the other production shots I've seen.

    How big is it? Rumor was that it wasn't as big as it looks.

    Fender eliminator and an aftermarket can would go a long ways with this bike. Also some sort of rear cowl to cover the banana but it doesn't look like a very feasible option with the way the seat is designed.

    I want to like it, but based on the pictures, I just can't. Maybe when I see it on the street..........

    The bike looks horrible in person, I'm not a fan.

    I didnt like how the rear drive stuck so far out away from the bike. If you go down, that's going to be destroyed.

    The single-sided swingarm is nice, and sitting on it feels awesome! Very comfortable, the angle of your arms to seat positioning feels wonderful.

    I would love to ride one, but nothing more than that.

    Bike is heavy. Fuel capacity is low for a bike this heavy.

    I had the same feeling, it does look better in person.

    It's not as big as it looks. An extra 400cc's and barely bigger than the old one.

    There is a key hole right in the middle of the rear fender, centered behind the rear seat. I was looking at it trying to figure out how to get rid of that and I'm not sure how that would work.

    Other than the horrible looking can it's really a neat looking bike. I love the way the front fairings route air into the engine. I had my doubts about this bike but it really looks good. Also, sitting on it, it's more comfortable than the older bike. I just wish I could ride it.

    Wow, that's not ugly, its fugly. Think my next VFR will be a 'busa.
     
  17. I kinda like the fairings, but the hideous exhaust, monstrous swingarm and pig snout are a turn off.
