Not my cup of tea. Don't like the colour, don't like the front wheel, ugly seat and ugly pin striping. A whole lot of money spent to ruin a F6B.

I agree, but I would love to know more about the suspension set-up. Lots more. (Cost, weight changes and affect on handling, how many modes, what are the down-sides, "ease" of installation (so far there's no available DIY on YouTube, so therefore it can't be real anyway)?

Looks like it goes straight well enough but I wonder if it can turn with no ground clearance apparent. Or maybe the suspension is all the way down.


Either way I think it's rather unattractive. To me anyway.

Yep. Lifts up when riding.

It's an eye-catcher but awful front wheel and fancy air crap takes up valuable cargo space. Gimme the oem 2020 wing!

It's a concept. It's like how fashion designers work: they go way out on a limb to come up with new ideas (what you see on the catwalk) and then the real thing is pulled back a bit. It's how we progress. We test the boundaries - push them too far even - and then pull it back a bit. Saying I don't like the wheel or I don't like the pin-striping misses the whole. And that whole is a well thought out, well executed piece of art which, if we embrace it, has the potential to open our minds to new possibilities.

I love customization... I doubt I'd ever really have the resources to do it. That machine to me, has a nice color. I absolutely hate the front fender.

So, it goes to show that IF someone decides to make their toy their own, ain't everybody gonna like everything they see.

While being able to lower a machine so that it sits pretty, just means you have installed more things that can go wrong. I want things simple and I want to ride... so if you want to see pretty, better look quick!
