The front end does look shitty ... looks like a pug!

it looks like they copied the gixxers with the short exhaust and the front turn signals integrated into the mirrors ... and the license plate holder and rear turn signals looks like its off the yami's

The "un-aerodynamic" nose was done with purpose. It is to create turbulence around the frontal region to assist in turn-in. The tail being to short is to follow the "mass-centralization" trend.
The unexpected letdowns come in the engine area. There were NO strides made in engine advancements. Not even the new craze of ovalized exhaust ports.
Overall, the 1000 should be a hit, but not a home-run.

Have you read anything about this 1000? the engine is almost completely different and the bike is wowing everyone who has ridden one. i bet Nicky wins it all this year on this bad boy.. I'm thinking of picking one up this month

First off, GP won't be riding this. They have to use the 800cc bike. Second the engine is not completely different, 1mm larger bore, 1mm shorter stroke.

Furthermore, just because everyone's wowed by riding it doesn't mean it's gonna be a homerun. That's exactly what mass centralization does. Hide the imperfections, by making it an easier ride. This is what Honda has always done.

You forgot its almost 20lbs lighter then 07'

I just think someone's mad because they have the older model

FWIW I think the 07 looks way cooler
