Good luck with that.
The GL1800 F6B has been sitting on showroom floors. I think they are tres cool, but then I like the DN-01 as well so that should tell you something.
I can't see many of these heading out the door either, but kudos to Big Red for trying.
The difference between you and me .........
Can you get it in Repsol colours?

What happened to the Rune?
DON'T STUFF THE CAGERS!
It's the new Rune
... dare I say, it's not THAT bad. As far as power cruisers go, it's better looking than the Rocket III or the VMax. Having said that, I'd still pick the Ducati Diavel.
Cute video. Does it come with a "you're the man!! yeaahhhh!!! arghhh!!" sticker?
"Yamaha" - it's Japanese for "fuck your sports car."
why is he only riding in a straight line. Any shit bike can do that.
That said, going up against the VMAX, Rocket 111, and Diavel, visually,,,,you don't have to work very hard to produce something actually LESS ugly.
I'm being quickly relegated to 'old person' status based on new bike visual design, I simply am truly puzzled and confused by this trend. I guess it's good for my bank account, as there's less and less chance every year I can see myself buying a new bike based on visual attraction.
Here's what I've found about the new design cues on bikes these day.
They all look like shit in the photos but great in person. I don't know why that is, if it's scale or the digital image is washing out key details or just the amount of buffing they get in photoshop but really they don't photo well.
As an example the Desmosedici. It looks like a big red swaybacked whale in a photo. See it in person and it's like a different bike.
I've seen that happen on so many others also.
I'm not a fan of these power cruisers to start so I suspect in person this won't excite me but chances are that it won't look as bad as it does here.
