Sorry but you obviously haven't noticed that the "steam punk" trend is very fashionable lately.

Anyway, I thought the ABS/UBS, TC and SYMMETRICAL FRIGGEN Headlights and no stoopid beak were a nice touch. All standard at the same price point as the unobtainable standard GS.

But I do agree that the YAMAHA was designed with a few things and the accessories were "sourced" where the BMW aims for the $50,000 price points and leaves things out as you go "down" the price points.

Just my opinion of course.
