BMW S1000RR, WTF?

So I've seen people posting pix of the new bike on here for a while. Has anyone seen the latest from BMW's website? I'm not sure how I feel about this yet but it seems to be inline with BMW's other crazy contraptions. Asymmetrical headlights :

The K1200R is asymetrical as well. It appears to be bmw's "signature" now.

The specs on it are supposed to be crazy sick, and the price point is right in line with the bikes. They are going to sell alot of them. I wonder how easy it will be to turn wrenches on it though.

It's "Two Face"! It's the ugliest bike I've ever seen...if they could take all of those plastics off and redesign it, it would be a super awesome bike!

I mean 193 HP, 403 lbs dry? That is just ridiculously fast!!!

BMW cars are sexy...bikes?

Or as my FIL calls it, Babyshit Yellow.

Sorry, I just can't get over the fugged up lights. That may appeal to people that insist on being quirky and therefore "cool" in their minds, but that violates my visual senses. It's like a chick with a D cup on one side and an A on the other. Two D's or two A's I can deal with - but one of each?

I'd rock it.

It is pretty ugly but if you are actually riding it and not posing at starbucks you can't even see the headlights.
