I think the Classic version looks better than the Meteor - the polished engine cases are a big improvement IMO over the all Black Meteor engine for a start. Actually not too disimilar in overall appearance to my Classic 500 - which will appeal to it's target audience.
The Meteor styling is obvioosly not to your taste, but this is the Thunderbird model that it replaces :
Notice the similarities ? The Thunderbird was a big seller in India, so it would make sense to make a replacement that appeals to buyers who liked that style, don't you think ?
Performance and weight are what they are. If not to your requirements, then move along - nothing to see here.
