I actually prefer the cleaner look of the 1100 over the later and smaller 750 V twin with the enormous air cleaner slapped on the side. I could see the cool in a set of velocity stacks if on a straight four or six like the old Hondas, or even the straight twins like the old Triumphs, but most air cleaners remind me of the one on a lawn mower engine no matter how cool the manufacturer may think it looks.
