Remember when they were so freaked out about damaging image that they started an entirely new company to house their innovations... Buell . They actually came up with some really cool engineering under Buell I could nit picka few points. But all in all I like the mix of heritage and modern tweaks.

The orange concept drawing...looks like someone had shrunk the top proportions for a midget, and kept the bottom for regular human proportions. That one will stay in the realm of comic books.
