Observing Wari's copyright requirement zealously.

Fans of naked bikes should enjoy these new offerings.

That 9 1/2 is worth a 10, in my books!

I'm starting to get sick of the, "I crashed my bike and can't be bothered putting the scratched fairing panels back on" look that seems to constitute naked bike design cues these days.

A 1980 GS1000S looks like it was supposed to have no fairing.

These are infinitely better than that poorly designed "Piece O' Crap" Benelli TNT though.

On the subject of "piece o' crap", I note that Suzuki NZ is heavily discounting the "naked" Bandit this summer. Tragic.

I don't really like the exhaust, and the semi front panel/fairing isn't my cup of tea.

But the rest... Droooooooool

not bad I suppose... but why have they reverted to a direct shock linkage at the rear?? I thought we were supposed to be advancing technology, not crawling back to the caves. Maybe they think it looks a lot better? Not convinced myself.

There is a heap of cantilever rear ends appearing at the moment.

Can I can I, Please? Santa? ... PLEASE! - I love the 9 1/2 though I wonder whether that is the age in weeks that the love affair with the bike lasts?

I agree. The exhaust is hideous. And bloody dangerous.

Let's lose them entirely... Now that's naked...

Ahem. The message you entered is too short because despite XJ/Fosty's admonition about slagging other people's bike taste off, the Australian can't shut up.
