This problem has been obvious to everyone here for a long time now. The fact that the powers that be here refuse to address it or even acknowledge it is telling in and of itself.
I think Ace is on to something when he posits that this is intentional.
The fuzzy and inaccurate use of words like "classic" and "legacy models" tends to soften the image of the bikes and make the ownership experience seem less threatening to many new buyers who probably aren't old time gear heads. At the same time it let's them share in the reflected glow from the past. That is the essence of "retro". Familiar shapes with all of the sharp edges removed.
