Normally I would think a vee twin engine, mounted in the right chassis, would look pretty cool but even the engine in this thing somehow looks wrong.

I've seen pics of the new bikes showing at Milan and there is no bike on this thread so far that can be any uglier than most of them.

I guess, BMW is the leader of the pack. How do they do it?

I have a new neighbor and his garage must be packed because he leaves his 1200 Madura in the driveway.
At some point I'll likely offer him a few hundred for it. I've owned ugly bikes before, and I'm not afraid of Maduras.
