I too think the above rendition is too old school. I like the looks of the newly offered bike better. The cool thing is I feel this bike lends itself so easily to modifications and personalizing it. Something that I think is more difficult on SS bike, adventure bikes and luxobarges. Cruisers may lend themselves to individulization and I think that is part of the attraction to Harleys however not everyone wants forward controls. Painting the tank, side covers, changing handlebars, seats, cowling, lighting, engine color, luggage options (leather/hardcase) seems like it gives you more options to individualize your bike than any other type of bike. The Guzzi v7 is a good example. I know you can change any type of bike however the standard templete just seems the ideal bike to start with imho.
