The Ducati's and the Laverda are absolutely the best!
The worst is probably the Munch4... Mad

no way, I love the münch, it looks as if it is very heavy, and it is, but in all reports from those days they say it steers as a nimble bike Very Happy . And it's a beautiful piece of engineering.

No no no Evil or Very Mad The tank/front wheel may be quite all right, but the back wheel is horrible. The complete back part of the bike is wrong anyway Razz , too many parts & covers everywhere, everything is covered of packed… I agree that the engine is fascinating, but I would not call it nice, non non non m'sieur ... When you check the Laverda’s of that time, it’s beyond compare... And I'm not even talking about the wonderful aesthetics of the four-in-line's or the Kawa triplets of that time...
I give this Münch a , and only because I'm in a good mood this morning he he he

I just found some pix of the other side of the Munch4, and I still don't like it, even in colours :

When you see the front view, with the 2 lamps, and also how the engine block is out of balance and hanging out on the right leg (looks like the clutch?)... I think the engineer who designed it must have been quite drunk when he worked on that

I would keep the tank - he's nice -, take some good strong black coffee and rebuild a complete other bike around it Twisted Evil

Eh eh that prototype is nice! Three cylinders and 2 strokes are magic words! ... Sounds good! I see that they kept the funny front wheel, but the rest of the bike is looking absolutely good and powerfull, great "aesthetics of speed"
She's nice! :message78:
