Each to the own opinion. I have the N model and get complements daily. I also like the way the fairing models looks. At one point in my life I thought the Honda Valkyrie was a ugly bike and 2 years later bought one and road for 11 years.

Well I must have no taste because I like 4 of the 5 (not a fan of the Victory). Original v-max is still one of my favorite bikes, and I think the Vulcan looks great,

Someplace I stumbled upon a Honda site which said the overall design of the faired CTX700 emphasizes horizontal lines, and I think they succeeded. The bike seems so well proportioned and damned good looking. The only issue I have with our faired bike is when it's viewed from the front: the concave curves in the nose piece should be convex, reiterating the curves of the panel it's covering; and, that death's head/Transformers/Hello Kitty's evil twin headlight is an abomination. The combination of the nose piece and headlight seem to say "you meet the nicest people on a Honda, except this model." I'm also not wild about wavy gravy brake disks, but they're hardly noticeable.

Not that I'm opinionated or anything.

My wife has had many people come up and complement her on her CTX faird model. I have not heard one person tell her that's ugly bike. Personally I think it's one sharp looking machine.🤗

That list should have been all Harleys... I can proudly state I have two of the five on the list! The Victory is not to my taste, but the Street Glide that has been cosmetically unchanged FOREVER is one of the ugliest bikes on the road, IMHO of course.

Current Motorbikes:
- 2014 Honda CTX700N (118,000 miles) - the daily rider
- 2019 Yamaha VMX17 "VMAX" (2,100 miles) - the weekend Hellraiser

Previous Motorbikes:
- 1986 Honda CB700SC "Nighthawk S"
- 1990 Yamaha YX600 "Radian"
- 2002 Yamaha FZS1000 "FZ1"

Interesting. It never occurred to me to even wonder if my CTX700DCT was beautiful or ugly. I'll have to take a good look when I'm in the garage tomorrow.

The sport bikes out on the highway think it's one of "them" and do a double take with the faird model...LOL
