I like the look, but the all black thing is so boring. The cost of styling is a complete waste as the bike just looks like a little black lump from a short distance.
No ABS? What century are the Japanese living in now?
Personally, a trunk is one of my favorite features on a bike and my wife would far prefer a luxurious backrest to the butt stop offering, but for a solo rider who is more interested in form than function, this certainly was a successful debut. It's design is about as nice as any bagger out there to my eye anyway.
