I think the cast subframe is fugly, and it's really lost some appeal. It's not gawd-awful, but this isn't a great move IMO.
We'll see how the sales go I suppose, but this is my version of the reaction I heard many having to the 999/749 design; yuck.
Still say thei Ducati Demon design would have been a better way to go.
At least they did something other with the exhaust routing from the horizontal cylinder and the numbers are impressive, so it will no doubt be a fun bike to ride.
