Yeah, absolutely atrocious. Sorry, just my opinion I'm 30, so wasn't even born when that original was new. In fact, I never even gave motorcycles a 2nd look until 10 years ago when I started riding.
Your opinion is wrong!!!
But yeah, I understand. I'm younger, but I was born around motorcycles, so I can relate to these designs. To me that CB1100 is gorgeous, and I like how they bring back these retro styles lately.
A little less retro, but Kawasaki seems to be bringing back the ZXR 1200 in Europe. Looks great!
Edit: I correct myself. As I think others have mentioned here, Honda has been selling this retro CB in Japan for a while now.

Just a little bit more than that.
New rear shock, Dual stage fuel injectors (one set for low/mid, and another for mid/high rpms), dual stage ram air, radial mounted front brake calipers, Big piston front suspension. Although they aren't say anything about a new engine. I hope it picked up a few ponies, if it's going to compete with other 600s.
To each their own, that's why we are human and have opinions. IMO, the new CBR600RR looks better than the new 636. I like it better than anything the Big 4 Japanese put out.
I like the 500, too. However, it is too heavy.
|I'll stick with the used bikes, they're cheaper and less fugly lol.|
Agreed, and its a damn shame. Originality in sportbike aesthetics(Japanese at least) seemed to have come to a halt around 2004, IMO. No lines, no flow, no character. Same sharp edges and cheap ass plastic bits year in and year out only with VERY subtle changes.
I bet if you removed the decals, most people wouldnt be able to tell one year from the other. Hell alot probably wouldnt be able to tell one make from the other.
