Often what is not said is more important than what is said. I can honestly say I have read just about zero positive feedbacks on the looks dept.
There just isn’t any of that “omg , it’s so beautiful” going around.

Pitty that Duc missed the bullseye on this one.
Well for me at least.
Thanks from JonT

Considering the frame is still attached to the head close to where your legs will rest, carbon fibre overlays will still be needed. This will kill two birds with one stone. The heat to your legs will be mitigated, and the ugly silver frame will be gone and now blend in nicely.

That's odd. I've heard or read far more positive than negative things about it, outside of these forums anyway. And it did win "Most Beautiful Bike of Show" at EICMA, which was determined by fan voting. On top of that, almost everyone I know in real life who is into bikes thinks it's a looker, and I know a local motorcycle club here of which nearly every member has put a deposit on one.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say I think it looks pretty damn good. Not perfect by any stretch, and I think the 1199/1299 still wins the trophy for most gorgeous superbike (I almost got a 1299 when it launched), but the V4 is far from kick-out-of-bed/garage status. Frankly, the negativity here has surprised me a little, but I respect all of your opinions nonetheless. Cheers
Thanks from SuperDuc29 and able duc
