Yeah, but isn't the whole point of motorcycles to make them different enough to be able to tell them apart without knowing that x bike has this exhaust and Y bike has this one? Or that one has a different front cowl?
I mean- you have to KNOW which is which to tell them apart. They don't make it obvious which one is their premiere bike, and that drives me nuts.
Like the 848 and 1098. They were literally identical in almost every way. Same with the 748/996, 749/999, etc. Take the badges off and you'd have no idea which is which.
Anyways- yeah. That's how you tell them apart. But all bikes look the fucking same these days, for the most part.
I got them all right, but I had to look at them and think about it for a few minutes. Except for the triumph.... but even then, it's starting to look more and more like the jap crap.
I'll take my BMW any day... unmistakable when you look at it.
|An even biggere challenge than de-badging the decals would be to remove all of the fairings and then try to figure out which is which.|
