Styling-wise, we love the look of this bike. The profile is mean and clean, and many of our staffers were caught giving the Spirit sideways glances. One observer noted the Spirit could pass for a Harley-Davidson Sportster_--_from a few paces back, in the dark with one eye closed, of course. Nevertheless, that crack probably was due to the Spirit's oval air cleaner. It's when you get closer that you notice the material, alas, no matter how oval, is made of plastic. And that's one of our big beefs with this bike_--_myriad styling accents and details are constructed of the unsavory stuff, which only serves to cheapen the product's appeal. And, in another unintentional salute to Harley, the Spirit's large, round mirrors are similarly unstable at higher speeds_--_making most images seen therein unnervingly hallucinatory. The 2-into-2 staggered bullet exhausts, however, score big styling points and release a pleasing high-pitched rumble. The cylinder fins are attractively polished, and the rear fender is a chopper-style, bobbed affair, further enhancing the street-rod style of this bike.
