I'm not all that crazy about the look, either. However I have come to accept that's just the way motorcycles are now. It seems that the busier they look, load it down with the most clutter, have as many different lines and sections, and parts the better. Then, give a dash with dozens of functions.
On top of that give it different ride modes (I think ride modes is just about the dumbest thing ever. Honestly If you can't handle it at full throttle, you bought too big of a bike) then give it anti lock brakes, because now, if you do something stupid, and get hurt, sue the manufacturer for a million dollars. I think it's a reflection of life today.
