Overview

The V-Strom models are considered by many as being not very aesthetic with an odd shape, even though as very functional and practical motorcycles.
This is inline with the 'Function Over Form' principle, which is almost the opposite from cruisers and customs (where the looks are more important than the actual functionality)
It is not surprising therefore, that some have attempted to give their V-Stroms more attractive looks.

'Top-Gun' Decals

Designed by BigMan73.
The Top-Gun decals take inspiration from the movie Top Gun and from the German decals design. The design uses a military stencil font which is similar to the one used by the US military. The font is sharper and rectangular, vs the rounder German font.
