Honestly, I kind of like the look of these bikes. I've never been real big on the beaks and sharp angled, tail in the air styling that make up the "transformer" look of so many of the bikes these days. I don't need huge horsepower and 150mph+ top speeds. I'm pretty sure these bikes will have adequate performance for day in and day out street use under most all conditions. I'm not real big on forward controls, but I'll have to reserve judgement on this one until I get a chance to ride one. If I were in the market for a new daily rider kind of bike, I'd definitely give them a look.
