Top 10 Most Stylish Bikes by Benelli designer Adrian Morton

1

1992 HONDA NR750

"A bike with a very sexy proflle, in Italian-style red. It had aggressive air-intakes and carbon clothing over its radical, if unsuccessful, oval-piston engine."
2

1994 DUCATI 916

"A design icon inspired unashamedly by the NR, but with a twist of real Italian flair Just compare the lines and front light profiles"
3

1993 DUCATI SUPERMONO

"Pierre Terblanche's (designer of the Ducati 999) finest work - sexy slim and single... who could ask for more?"
4

1985 BIMOTA DB1

"The bike that inspired the stunning Ducati Paso. It introduced all-enclosed bodywork while retaining a dynamic, purposeful race bike look."
5

1979 KAWASAKI KR350 RACER

"The bike that inspired the Supermono's fairing, with a 'Green-Meanies' image. It had a purposeful, taut styling that could be so easily re-invnted on Kawasaki's current race bikes."
6

1950 VINCENT BLACK SHADOW

"A large part of its styling was the engine - probably the most beautiful to ever grace the frame of a motorcycle."
7

1988 HONDA VFR7SOR (RC30)

"An endurance single-sided swingarm, a modern fairing, and an overall purposeful race look that redefined what the general public wanted."
8

1990 BOXER BA 747

"A student's dream bike. The radical proportions, the truncated tailpiece and forward stance has inspired many naked bikes to come, including the forthcoming Benelli..."
9

1987 ELF 4 GP RACER

"Radical suspension and radical looks made this machine the most unique on the GP tracks."
10

1983 SUZUKI GSX1100S KATANA

"Love it or hate it, the Katana changed bike design. It integrated various separate elements into one, and turned a page in motorcycle styling."
