It seems to have a huge following but I agree about the ugly part.

A few of us buy motorcycles based on how they work
and not how the look.
That “form after function” thing.

I know you are speaking of your current bike because it is an FJR. They are great looking bikes.

Does not make sense in this day and age with all the options out there as you have to like how the bike looks. Many find the boxer attractive and that is why it is popular.

It’s all about torque.

Boxers make sense since, riding on a wave of torque is a perfect fit for riding “the pace”.
