Most beautiful bike?

Postby smileyman » Mon Mar 28, 2011 9:35 am

Yep it is entirely subjective, but looking at a Ducati down Mena way a couple weeks ago and listening to Dan's comments about it has me thinking. What is your "most beautiful" bike? We had a Britten thread where the bike was a technical tour de force but the bike was kinda homely. There has been alot of speculation which generation Honda Thou was sexiset. Which styling or desing most gets your eye? What bike makes you lust after it like a 15 year old boy at college gymnastic tryouts?

For me when I think of beautiful bikes I get the Duc 1098/1198 styling, but am also in love with the MV Agusta F4/F3.

Of all the bike shops I have ever been in, and enjoyed, the one that stands out is Ducatti. Their stuff was like eye-candy! I was barely able to drag myself off the premises withhout going into debt. Never rode one. Don't want to, because I'm afraid I'd like it, and then I'd want one. As far as eye-appeal goes, not sure how it could get any more alluring than the Duc's.

The MV Augusta has always had my heart as well.

Whenever I walk by the garage door, I just have to open it and say damn. I have loved Ducatis for years and now to have one is like a dream. If I could not have one then MV would be the next best thing.

Duc 1098S is my dream bike. Sadly, I have many other toys I will buy before I buy a second bike. One can dream.

Sweet RD! For some reason I like the Ducati Sport Classics too. Most lustworthy in the black and gold color scheme...

Triumph 675, think it's still the best looking.

KTM RC8R
Triumph Daytona 675
Ducati 1198S


.....And as far as Honda Thous go I'm going to side with the minority and say the '08+ are much better looking than the rest. The stub nose grows on you....

I'm gonna have to go with what's in my garage. 07-08 Yamaha R1. But if it was anything else. I would most certainly have to say Ducati 1198 and for a third probably the 98-00 Kawasaki ZX-9R.
