The body work and attention to detail is awesome for a modern era bike. Top notch components, carbon fiber body work, and that swing arm is very cool. No wonder it's $28k! My only issue is that I've never heard anyone get too excited about the DS based motors. I've ridden a Sport Classic that had this motor, and while capable, it didn't seem like it had any soul... Then again, when equipped with the Termi pipes, it sure did wake it up!
