Is it just me or does the front beak look like a wooden chip fork?

i find it worryingly ok looking  :003:

but then arent all enduro/adventure bikes a bit like this?? We will never be in 916/MV beauty territory for as long as we choose long distance enduro based bikes in my opinion.

Crosstourer is just soo much nicer in its outlines / design. Two pictures for a direct comparison to BMW:
Around the world and back ... driven Honda motorbikes all over Europe, Australia, NewZealand, Japan, Russia .....

I like the look of it. I like the previous GS and GSA also.
Looks like they made a copy of the Triumph Explorer  :745:

Which doesn't mean i want to pay one. Still hoping for a CT (manual) after new year :152:
