    I think the MVs and Ducati are Hideous Due almost exclusively because of the lights.

    Yep the Brutes were good looking bikes. I'm with Chris on the open engine less dense look and the Indian Flat Tracker. These new ones above be they MV or Duc are butt ugly....

    The ride is a little on the rough side.

    Sorry for getting a little off topic.

    Why does my previous post have links in it, in green?
    I didn't put those in there.

    If you are referring to certain words being in green, I think itís because they are recognized content with universal links. Like Kawasaki or Honda are known so therefore will likely show up in green with links to their sites for example.
    Thatís my hunch anyway. Iíve noticed it before.

    Just like me - especially those in the first two posts are an insult to my eyes.
    To each his own but those design crimes are preposterous to me.

    The fit, finish, and attention to detail on the MV will be light years ahead of even the Duc.

    I'm old and cranky, but I like the latest Z series. Been doing a fair amount of touring on a Z650. Even the diminutive Z650 will do anything and plus that a ZRX can in the corners easily and certainly more controllable. And even rideable after cutting deer in half.

    I agree. I had a long test ride ,and it was great fun.Kind of a mix of the ZRX and my Multi,sensation wise. But not as fast as either, and not very versatile.
