The "tail pushed up" is a custom styling trend that's been going on in Germany's Sport Bike Scene for maybe 10 years now...

Well, it looks like this R1100S is not hitting any good vibes here...I can see a bit of the new R1200S there though...maybe even influenced the R12S somewhat?...like ummmmmmm...No Bags!

And what if you put your honey on that rear section where the Pipe sticks out...that'll warm her back side up a bit, eh?

I still recall my mechanic buddy John's comment of seeing the new Seville in the '80's, "Looks like it got hit in the back by a freight train".

Everything aside, could the rear 'hugger' come off at a worse angle?

seems this capable individual beat honda to the punch in having a snub-tail bike. see, i always knew honda never had an original idea-they only buy the patents of those that do :P

have you seen the new motoGP 800cc racer? that was what i was refering to. the honda looks much better...but the snubbed tail design, in general, was where the remark was targeted.

More like 15, as it was already starting back when I was taking all my fun motorcycle engineering classes there in Darmstadt, which was circa 90-91. The trend predates and transcends the Germans though. Straight out of late 80s Tokyo. A good 20 years back.

Some things look great with their tail in the air.
Sportbikes, however...
