H2

When the H2 was revealed last September, I reserved judgement on its styling. Sometimes new ideas take time to get used to - the shock of the new and all that...

Well, I've had time to consider it and I still think it's ugly. There's no cohesion to it. Its a whole load of bits bodged together. I don't think this is a mistake. I think it was a very deliberate policy by the designers. I understand that they wanted to make a statement about the ground-breaking nature of the bike, but I don't understand why it's so irregular...

It's the sort of pretentious shit BMW (both cars and bikes) does to show people how clever they are. It smacks of The Emperor's New Clothes and I think it shows a lack of confidence. I think this is borne out by the fact that after all the fuss, it isn't actually a 300 horsepower street bike.

Fuck that! Kawasaki, go back to making the fastest, most beautiful bikes and leave the avant-garde conceptual stuff to Yamaha, who do it with such charm.

Thank you.

Ugly as Sin
