Thoughts? I think it looks a bit CBR-1000 at first glance, but it's important to remember who made twin horizontal headlights and undertail exhaust cool.
It's a step in the right direction, styling-wise, compared to the 999. Pancake-flat tailsections are in these days; not sure how I feel about that. Everybody loves a single-sided swingarm though, right?

90 ft/lbs of torque sounds like fun too.

Wow I didn't know ducati made an R1. Ok just kidding. Don;t love the single sided arm and not a fan of the styling. But I did love the triple 9 and the 916/998 styling when they were around.

I love anything polyellipsoidal.

Actually I just like seeing four digits on the side, still undecided about the styling.

Polyellipsoidal front light (frontlight, headlight) for motorbikes (made by CEV - Italy)

The semispherical lens is of thick glass and no extra protection is needed. A bearing plate is provided to consent an easy assemblage. The plate is an integral part of the headlight, as shown in the picture.
A 55 W single-light halogen lamp in the inside produces a wide and powerful beam which does not disturb who is driving in the opposite direction. This way, the double-light is not necessary, however you can still install a double-light lamp by slightly widen the lamp space (widening the lamp space is something
