    My thoughts exactly. This motorcycle should rule WSBK!

    Actually I was so engrossed in the motorcycle for the last few days!

    I actually made a video about it!

    This motorcycle is so aggressive. I feel turned on!

    Headlights may look good in the night but comes nowhere close to the traditional dual eye type design IMO.
    Call me old fashioned but i always loved the analogue tacho.

    Coming to the technology, that is surely to heat up the competition now! Looking forward to some serious heat between the S1000RR, ZX-10R, Panigale and this!!
    Same here. I for myself, do not hate the looks specifically, but yes, do feel that the R1 aura is missing with the 2015 model.
    The 2007-08 model had raised the expectations in terms of looks pretty high. I just can't get over the way how beautiful does this particular model looks. Full of character. Headlamps resembling the eyes of a cobra, vicious and evil. In contrast, the newest model is more about purpose rather than beauty.
    All said and done, just cover the odd headlamps and the bike starts looking rather good.

    gone is that hand sculpted curvacious beautiful looking R1 that would make a guy go weak in knees from any angles..
    these times are more of sharp edges and alien looking drones moving on 2 wheels..

    those twin barrels.. sound of the cross-plane , those projector devil headlamps.. and those curves..

    the old R1's will soon be the cult...

    am guessing the govt's soon will be making it official that alien races do exist parallel to humanity.....

    Doesn't the front look a lot like the Paningale... The position of lights, the vents on the side...
    All are going in for the futuristic look it seems.

    In my humble opinion, I still like the 2007-08 R1 more than any R1 after it.
    The 2009 R1 gained a lot of race credo with the irregular firing & the CPCS, but the 2 projector looks were okayish in my opinion.


    Headlights give character to a motorcycle's design. And this latest design... its good. But its not really lovely enough at first sight, and its trying too hard to be something that it doesn't convey at all.

    If you're going for an all MotoGP look, its a great thing. But why should the headlights even be visible from the front, that too in such an ugly way? A little brainstorming could've eliminated those funny "low-eyes" headlight position forever.


    Say, how about giving the front mask a matt-translucent or matt-transparent look, and keeping a pair of headlights inside it?
    It would make it aerodynamic enough & give the MotoGP looks, given that the headlights will only shine from inside while riding, and not be otherwise visible clearly at standstill.
    A higher wattage/ power bulb would've been required though.

    A not so feasible idea space-wise, would be to have headlights on the outside of the fairing, in place of low placed indicators (like ZX 6R has had, in the 2007 & other models). In other words, integrate headlights into the fairing... It wouldn't have given it a unique identity, but atleast the motoGP frontal looks could've been there.


    There could've been lots of ways to avoid the frontal low slung headlights, but I guess its not too bad even now...
