Looks better than I thought it would when I saw the first sketches. When the 511 came out I fucking hated it looking at pictures, but seeing one, it has sort of grown on me. I suppose they're starting an evolution in styling and in 10 years every bike will look similar. Think about how all the MXers look similar now, sharp rad shrouds for example, yet MXers from 20 years ago look crap in comparison to todays (to me anyway). I think Husky (BMW) is trying to change styling for this decade.

It's not horrible, but it could use some work. As was mentioned, ground clearance seems lacking. I suppose that's not likely to change. Looks a little raked out to me, and the muffler looks like a fart can off a rice rocket or something. I'm having trouble looking past the wires running all over it, but I'm sure they're just for data collection on the test bike. Overall, it's not too bad. I'd call it more of a true sumo (from just looking anyway) than any of the other multi-cylinder bikes out there.

I'm digging it! I like how small and compact it looks. Like you could really throw it around. Also, the profile and lines look better than the hypermotard in my opinion.

Also, I think it looks raked out because that one picit doesn't look like he is leaning, but he is. The rake looks similar to the sm610 which turns nice and tight but is smooth and is predictable.

Looks like something still deep in the "developmental" stage. At least I hope so because it is god awful ugly. I just puked up in my mouth a little.:rolleyes2:
