I found some more spy pics of this engine, and my god it is UGLY. It looks all square and as if its made in china. Why wouldn't they at least TRY to make it look like the classic engine they are famous for? At least Triumph made their new Bonny engines look similar to the old ones. Bad move if you ask me on REs part, it doesn't even fit the shape of the bike and looks horribly out of place. I hope for RE USAs sake it is a very reliable engine, because they won't be selling these on looks alone anymore.
Patience my grasshopperThe bike the UCE is in is a stop gap deal just for Europe becuase the engine meets Euro 3. It was always intended for a brand new bike which in theory we will have in 2009. While the look will generate debate, I think most of you will find it beautiful.For what it is worth, the engine is not in it's final visual form either.
