I guess this thread proves two things to me...one, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and two, I seem to be a huge minority. I simply do not like the look of the new bike ( I realise most do). I know the paint scheme is 30th anniversary, but it literally looks like its 30 years old, its the type of paint job they did then. Im not keen on the white frame and I'm pretty sure that won't hold up well. The extended back side panels look like an aftermarket add on. The forks no longer match the colour of the wheels. The winglets ruin the front etc etc. However, I do see some benefits in the bike, the throttle by wire (future cruise) and lighter batteries. As others have said, I would have welcomed tubed tires and cruise, but never mind. Ill carry on enjoying my AT.
