    Buell - 4. Only because i could sell it easily to a German, for the bike itself, 2.
    Bimota - 1980's were bad... bad bad bad... most things should stay in the 80's - 2
    900SS - A true classic but one that doesn't inspire me truely - 7
    Scooter - Only because it has a bird in high heels - 1
    996 - Should be a 9... but shit grips and clutch cover make it a 7

    Buell - too much metalflake on the frame
    Bimota - were the cans that ugly 20 years ago?
    Ducati 900SS - not a round case motor so not as nice as it could be.
    Gilera Nexus - not the best Gilera, let alone the best maxi scoot.
    Ducati 996 - mid-life crisis made metal.
    Ducati 1198 - mid-life crisis made plastic.

    I'll have this - but not for what they are asking. (And the irony of a braced swing arm on an isolastic suspended motor is not lost on me!)

    I bet it was designed in the 80's and eventually they got round to 'building' it.... Once they'd filled the spare parts bin with enough rubbish to make a few.
