I really can't see the attraction? Naked bikes with up to date technology with a nod to retro styling yes, its just a look, underneath its a modern bike. This is just an old bike in shiny paint, I thought stuff like this with pencil thin forks etc. went away in the 80's.
I know the average age of bikers is getting older but this is just sentimentality taken to extremes.

Nice, but I'd rather have a griso as a modern classic bike.

STILL not as nice as my XJR1300.

I'd like to have one though... wouldn't stay standard for long... different USD forks... some agressive styling... custom subframe for a hard-assed look... I could do a lot with that, visually.

This is such a beauty... I'd get in in silver though

Have to agree.

98% of the time I'm right. Why worry about the other 3%.

We've got them here in Australia too, although I've never seen one on the road.

I can certainly see the attraction and they look a good base for customisations, but I can think of half a dozen other retros I'd prefer.

I can see nothing but attraction. I would buy one in a heartbeat if offered in the U.S.
