...mm.. a bit curate's eggy..
If you're going down the art deco enclosed look with "the line" being important then personally...
Front mudguard closer to wheel and deeper.. covering the rim.
Rear mudguard deeper as front.
Bolt on air filters? Yuk.. rather tubes going to inboard filter.
Also shrouds around those messy looking throttle bodies.
I know some of the above are on the original R7 but e.g. the front mudguard was not mounted (apparently) on the form lowers but the uppers.
.just my two penn'rth :P

According to my local dealer it's the 1800 cc engine
There would appear to be a surfeit of prolixity and sesquipedalian content today please do not use a big word when a singularly un-loquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity

I can not say exactly why, but somehow I like it too.
