what the RC211 will look like come the weekend of April 7th...



uuugghh... revolting if you ask me. i honestly never really warmed up to the nastro azzuro NSR. i hope rossi's not still going to be wearing those non-matching neon yellow leathers on this thing too...? it was already not matching with the different shade of yellow on the 500. i'm so spoiled by WSBK and AMA racing... LOL

Re: livery and onions

yeah, i think i recall reading something about that too. and last, but not least... the "powder puff" stylings of the "cube"...



i think they should go ahead and black out the frame and swinger like most everybody else and make the wheels sky blue. just my
.02$...

Re: livery and onions

I guess I'm the only one. But I think the Aprilia's nose looks like crap. A lot like the Hayabusa...it looks heavy (not that it is).

And I love the Honda...It's body work is a break from the others and super racey looking. It's half-faired...a lot like the new R1

just Ride!

Re: livery and onions

gavilan, I'm with you on this. I think the Aprilia cube's front looks like a big nose with nostrils. It looks better painted, but it seems a little out of proportion to the rest of the bike.

Re: livery and onions

Yeah, I get the same Mr. Potato-head vibe from the Aprilia. I like the Honda, though, except maybe those little wings on the tank. Am I the only one who thinks those wings are getting a bit played out?

Re: livery and onions

yeah, that "snot locker" leaves much to be desired for me too... but knowing what whitveen and beggio acheived aerodynamically with the mille, i'm sure it's "function" over "form". i'm sure i'll get used to it. that bike is too TRICK for an admitted "technophile" like myself not too. :) believe it or not, i once thought the mille was "heinous". LOL
