I'm usually not a fan of retro bikes or funky- builds, but... wow, this thing looks cool.

Can't tell how the front suspension articulates, though.

It's just a girder. Entire length of the "fork" is a solid piece with two pivoting arms (think of a dual a-arm style setup on a car) tied back. It looks like the shock/spring unit sits behind the steering stem, but I can't tell for sure from that one pic.

At 100k they should have found a way to hide that radiator a bit better.

I think a design like this is meant to showcase the mechanical details in all their naked glory.

Too many bikes these days, even the supposedly "naked" ones, are too covered up.

I absolutely agree! That doesn't mean the radiator should just be hanging behind the front forks though. They've obviously put a ton of work into the overall design, except for the radiator.

If harley and bmw can do it for their partially water-cooled models, I'm sure these guys could have as well. I know this is a fully water-cooled engine, but they are clearly not going for performance. They should have sacrificed a little bit of performance that will never be used to add aesthetic appeal.
