Default Discovery Channel website's "Which is the coolest motorbike"

As usual I was surfing the net when I found this whole article about superbikes and a vote poll in the corner saying which is the coolest superbike.
http://discoverychannelasia.com/moto...gp/index.shtml

Option 1 - Ducati 916
Option 2 - Honda Fireblade
Option 3 - Suzuki GSX
Oprion 4 - None of the above (Not exactly needed in this vote poll).

I felt that the vote poll was rather biased. There at least a dozen other bikes that qualify for this poll, viz. Yamaha R1, Kawasaki ZX10R, Triumph Daytona, Aprilia RSV, Benelli, and the list goes on.

So BHPers, what do you think qualifies as the coolest superbike. "Bole to aakdum tarapta bharapta, item maafik"

Start voting now.

When it comes to COOL (not necessarily based on performance or how one bike is 30/1000s of a second faster than the other), I think the MV Agusta F4 is one of the coolest.

I would love to be seen on that bike

I would like to add this one, built by John Britten, you can find about him and his bikes here:
The New Zealand Edge : Heroes : Speedsters : John Britten : www.nzedge.com
this bike stands 6th in 10 greatest ever bikes on discoverchannel, check this link :

incidentally there is a vespa scooter in the list and a honda moped similar to the baja M-80 in the number 1 position !!!!
