What's funny is that some of the other OEM's have copied it.

Speaking of dumb, stupid looking stuff, what second grader designed the Honda graphics?

I wanna say the basis for the 'CRF' shape was Trey's old mechanic a few years back...

Didn't realize Vital was now just about Herlings.

OT: I actually like the KTMs look a lot better than what they used to be.. and I agree about the Honda up there.

Yep X2 to the OP. KTM has never figured out the front fender, along with Suzuki and Husqvarna. I'm not sure what KTMs thought is on having part of the radiator shroud unpainted black plastic. What is the point? Honda as well. Honda and Kawi have always had the best aesthetics, consequently they have sold the most bikes in the past.

The same second grader that made Hondas OEM quality higher than everyone else.

The black area is texturized and black to allow the leather on MX knee pans to grip/squeeze better without marking up the actual graphics. Its actually a pretty decent design that no one else does.

Many people are going to cover it with monster logos and other BS but the "core Honda buyers" (aka me) would leave it stock and love having a nice looking bike in 5 years with stock plastics.

Thats nothing but slick sales-pitch to hide going cheap on costs. We all know thats not helping anybody grip the bike any better-unfortunately it didn't help K-roc.
When you sell your bike in 5 years its going to be a dull scraped black spot.
I do credit Honda for bringing back the red-lOOks good like a Honda should ..

Aren't you the goofball who was making the claim that the manufacturer with the "best" looking front fender were selling the most units a while ago? But, your whole argument was based on YOUR personal opinion on the fenders...Get with it bro

Yeah, I've got opinions Moran, so what? I could go back and get sales figures and all that but why? To try and show some gripey old guy on the forum I'm right? IMO the KTM front fender could have a better shape? Would it sell more? Maybe. I'm not sure since it's already and outstanding bike and it's selling well. So is some of my theory debunked, yeah probably so. Big deal

Man if you're looking at your fender you're doing it wrong.

It's fine, I've moved past it. Just responding to the OP. It's just personal taste. Majoring on the minors. I'd take any of the new bikes in a heartbeat.

Gripey old guy? I'll have you know I am offended, us millennials get angry over this sort of thing. That is age profiling....How dare you assume my age or gender.
