      It looks like a Monster and a Motard made babies.




      Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, well...

          About time they gave the monster an update, it was looking very dated.

          But...have they hired a kawasaki designer lately? Or just changed the drug mix

                    I disagree S4R. They didn't look 'classic' like a Triumph, they looked like something designed in the early 90's that was never updated. Not old enough to be purposely old, so they should be updated on a regular basis.

                      I like it.
                      “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                        Ah yes updating the Monster which is a 15+ year old Tambo design yep thats going to be as much fun as replacing the 916 series. Yep not bad not sure about the large aluminium frame plate though.

                          intial reaction ....yeech

                          having second look okay, neat style to the exhausts - zard like

                          agreed not sure on the big cheuck of alloy at the sides

                          i actually like the old design so a faceleft here n there would have been fine by me

                          but as monsters are their biggest sellers guess they had to do something - im guessing they are treading cautiusly to avoid another 916 into 999 drama .....tho i actually like the 999 shape :o
