Looks ok. 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? Otherwise, it looks ok. Not really fond of what they did with the headlights - it will take some getting used to.
