I like the lights. But I also like a lot of cars from the 80s.

These look the part but felt like crap when I sat on it. The saddle seemed abnormally wide. I couldn't get comfortable on it no matter how I sat on it maybe I'm just a weirdo?

Like somebody else mentioned, the 600rr looks dated about 10 yrs back. If they were trying to go for a retro look, they got it. Looks meh to me.

The new 636 looks tits though. Sat on one at a local dealership and it felt like I was in the bike, not on the bike. Bet it would make a good track bike.
