 They all look so similar to me. The Suzuki and Kawi have reticules huge exhaust that I don't like. But out of the choices I would perfer the Yamaha.

 What about Ducati, BMW, Aprilia, or even the Buell. My next bike will probably be the 1125R Buell. I don't want to hear it, I like it.

I'm glad most of them have gotten over the under seat exhaust phase.

Although, The MV Agusta is probably still the sexiest beast.

Once again.     Where's the "other" button???!!!   Rolleyes

What about..
Bimota?
Benelli??
Aprilia??
MV Agusta??
BMW??
Ducati??
Triumph??

Personally, I think representatives from any of these manufacturers are better looking "liter" bikes than the options you gave.

  As far as I'm concerned, none of the bikes pictured warrant a second glance.

  However, KTM's RC8 could stop a clock.

You are correct sir.  I didn't include them because I wanted know what people thought of the styling of the Japanese bikes.  I should have called the poll "Best looking of the ugly Japanese liter bikes".

I just realized that I can change the title of the thread.  It has been changed to better reflect the options.

The R1 looks rather beefy compared to the others.  I'm sure it's an optical delusion due to the underseat exhaust.  I like it...

None of the latest Japanese liter bikes is interesting to me visually.

2004 R1?  Beautiful.  2003 R1?  One of the best looking bikes ever made.   Inlove  2003 GSXR 1000?  Good looker and understated, even.

But the latest crop looks pretty mediocre.  Don't get me wrong, they are flyers and they aren't plain when you're riding them!    Cool  Inlove

CBR1000RR gets my vote.  You should have shown the R1 from the front, I bet less people would have chosen it then.   Crazy

i vote Suzuki. the Honda looks like it rain into a wall with that flat nose, the R1 - hate the headlights and womanly exhaust, the Kawi - hate the front end. but i agree about the 04 R1's  LOVE THE LOOKS!!

Repsol is my favorite. Then probably the yellow R1. Suzuki needs to seriously think about painting their GSXR something other than white/blue/red. At least offer something that looks cool.

And black doesn't count. Not very creative.

Aside from the hideous exhaust can that would be replaced before leaving the showroom, I like the Kawi the best.

I like what I bought, not just the conservative styling but the fact it is the lightest and very easy to ride. I also rode a MV F4 and it is a beautiful machine, but I would be scared to damage it. EEK! I think the CBR 1000 handles better than the MV anyway.

New here to your site! I too bought the CBR1000RR! What a machine. The Pug nose actually throws the air much higher and does not affect you the same way as a pointed front end. At 50 I have to do some streaches before getting on her but she is a blast!

The Hondas and Yamahas have looked pretty good in past years but I don't think any of them are particularly attractive this year. I'm looking for a 'none of the above' button.

Some of the 600s are damn sexy though.
