Is it just me or does anyone else think the headlight and air intake area of the new R6 looks a lot more like a plastic replica of the Predator alien than it does a proper motorcycle? When I saw it at the motorcycle show today I was so struck by the comparison I almost expected the side mandibles to start twitching and for the bike to stand up and grow the alien's dreadlocks!
The other issue I saw with the new R6 is the odd looking small passenger perch that is so out of scale to the rest of the bike that it really detracted from the flow of the bike's shape for my tastes.
It's got some good and even great styling features but these two things just ruined it for me.
Now the new Triumph 675 though. THAT was a looker!
