I can't decide which of these gorgeous bikes is better or better looking. What do you think?

The Scrambler


The XSR7000

that's the good side of the Scrambler, without the funky exhaust...if only Yamaha had given us some ADV style tires and a nod to scrambler styling!

I love both but am leaning toward the Yamaha. That's a bulletproof motor and is that naked I've been wishing they'd build.  Bigok





Either way is a win. Maybe I should get both.  Chili

That Yamaha strikes me as a bit of a parts bin look. Busy. And the radiator just screams look at me. But I am fickle. I have heard great things about the engine.  
Am I right in seeing Pirelli Phantom tires  Headscratch on the Yamaha ?  Used to run those exclusively in the old daze on the Z1's etc. Distinctive tread pattern.

 It does look unfinished...but the tank is so much better than the FZ!

Aside from the unfortunate radiator the Yamaha is a better looking bike by far.

If I were to buy one I'd simply paint the rad shrouds black and call it a done deal.

They are both great looking bikes. But that goes without seeing the Ducati exhaust bazooka. Taking reliability of the Jappos and ease of maintenance into account, I choose Jappo.

I kinda like the looks of the Ducati better.

If it was a gift, I would take the Ducati. If I had to buy it, I would get the Yamaha.

 If the Yamaha looked like that, I would be at the dealer picking one up today!
