Straight from Steve Harvey, only a mother buzzard could love that Busa face

Doesn't hold a candle to the epitome of ugly, courtesy of the new Harley Davidson Pan America.

Lipstick and legs, "sunk emotional cost" as a marketing effort, plus a chance for me to stick vid into thread (new platform easy-squeezy :))

There's all sorts of ugly, I rode one and was given free rains with it for twenty or so miles. It put a big smile on my face as it pulled as hard as the KTM 1190 Adventure R I once rode!
I think most of the so called adventure bikes aren't really much to look at including my under powered Super Tenere. If I want pretty I get on the 07 FJR.

The Pan America has had some surprising decent initial reviews although it is not pretty IMHO. Not inexpensive and I would be concerned that Harley would not support it long term (V-rod and Buell). Still, they have a potential winner with that engine in whatever platform, as long as it proves to be reliable.

I don't think the Pan America is that ugly, it's kinda weird but I kinda dig it. The Busa though has always been too ugly to even fantasize about.

It will be awhile before I would trust it's reliability, besides I have to perfectly good Yamaha's that will most likely out last me.
I don't need a 150 HP dirt bike not that the PA is. Now back to the Busa, I would enjoy scaring my self with it although I'd rather do it on the MT-10.

I don't really grasp ugly. But then, I have no soul or character so perhaps I am unable.

Every time I see the HDPA from the front I can't help but think the Industrial Design team used the "Lost in Space" B-9 Robot as motivation for the Headlight design.
