I agree that the first one was ugly. The second one had the weird beak, but I thought it was reasonably good looking (certainly compared to the GS). But, more importantly, it is, by far, the most versatile bike out there. If I was buying motorcycles today, I would buy an MTS first and then start looking at other stuff, it is a no-brainer.
