Also notice that the seemingly bulbous front end that we all hated in the studio profile shots is a bit of an optical illusion. That line is created by the two ridges that run over the top fairing and down towards the headlights.
In the videos, where I think you get a better sense of what it looks like in three dimensions, it's not quite so objectionable. Your eye can pick up more of the subtlety, in this case, the main line of the nose.
It's not always easy to capture something like a motorcycle in a 2D image.
I'm also a big believer in seat cowls. So even if the bike is a bit homely, adding one usually helps. It did wonders for my '02 D955i (not a pretty bike).
I think the sub frame looks better in the vids, too.
