I think the original striple was the best looking as well, but the new one to me looks better then the last design. I like the low mount exhaust, just the one on the bike looks like ass. Im sure with an aftermarket normal looking exhaust it will look better. I can never forgive them for getting rid of the round headlights, but the new ones arent terrible with a fly screen. Nothing else bothers me about the new design.
I am lost as to why manufacturers put those (I have no idea what to call them) "shield/bodywork" over the radiator. It looks lousy on almost every bike. Adds weight, I am quite sure it has no real protective ability for the radiator and it adds cost. It seems a form over function styling exercise that needs to stop. The engine is cool looking - you don't need to hide it. It is a streefighter / neo-brit UJM - why put the bodywork back on that you just took off?
