The Suzuki Recursion Concept looks a lot like a Buell Lightning

Suzuki unveiled its Recursion concept bike at the Tokyo Motor Show. It looks like the bike takes a lot of inspiration from Buell -- light weight, mass centralization, broad usable power, and minimalism. Take a look for yourself.

I don't know if you can say that. Bikes are less about form than they are function. At the end of the day any bike with 2 wheels and a fairing looks essentially similar.

The cool thing about the Suzuki though is it debuted their plans to turbocharge.

I can see the similarity. The front fairing on both have similar design cues. Similar shapes with the same coloring.

Sounds like from @Hindsight 's post that the bike shares mroe than just looks too.

those are principles of motorcycle construction.

If thats where we're going then it takes all its inspiration from MotoGP bikes. I'm just saying we have to be careful in accusining so and so of copying so and so when there is only so much than can be done with 2 wheels and an engine.

Definitely looks too much like the buell, maybe it was hard for them to make it look any different?

You guys seem apprehensive about the similarities between the Suzuki and the Buell. Here is a link to the original article.
