You're right, that style is older than 10 yrs ago- sadly.
Only it wasn't adopted by motorcycle designers until later, say around the time of the Futura- which was shown to the public 10 yrs ago.
"The bike's large, angular shape divided critics: some thought it was innovative and made it "look like an F-117" while others said it was just too bulky. With its hard-shelled panniers, the Futura was intended to compete with the similarly styled Honda VFR800 , but poor sales and Aprilia's worsening financial position led to the Futura's demise. Production ended in 2003, although the bike remained in the range until 2005."
