Remember that beautiful Katana back in the day?   That was a beautiful beautiful machine.

This new thing ain’t. It’s about as ugly as ugly can get.  I don’t know what these engineers are damn thinking  with these ugly ducklings.

I thought the original was ugly. This new one follows the same path and also is ugly.

I can see the original in the current design.  I didn't like the original when it came out but it grew on me over time.  I don't think the new one is ugly.  Maybe because I did get to like the old one.

It's just not a type of motorcycle I would buy.

That later Katana is a different animal than the first whacko model. I could own the 1993 bike!
