Great shapes, aesthetics .... I would go for more subtle and understated rims ...
I reckon that is more the work of a amateur designer with some time on it's hand .. as you can see with the position of the Ferrari batch and technical details (suspension, Air outflow, ...)

Aerodynamically, it seems to have been designed without the rider in mind. Virtually every other fast motorcycle has cutouts into which the rider can tuck his/her legs to get them out of the relative wind. Not to mention some sort of means to deflect the oncoming wind up and over the front of the rider.
This Ferrari concept appears to have been designed for optimum aerodynamic efficiency...so long as there's no rider on board.

A design like this will take some time to get used to, if in fact it will look like this. Having said that, it looks IMO much nicer in Black.
So shall we expect to see Ferrari in bike racing any time soon? From a marketing point, V. Rossi in a Ferrari would be pretty interesting

it's as ugly as sin if you ask me (and i know no one is!), but compared to the MV Agusta F4, the Ducati 996 and even a bog standard R1, this bike is like the huntchback of Notra Dame crossed with Frankenstein!!! Aerodynamics might be there, but i bet the rider would have no spine left and in this case i think there's definately shame to be felt from a vespa slipping down the inside to corner tighter than that fat lump can (supposition) lol
ps, bring back the RC45, what a machine that was....no mistaking that sound as it wound up and whined!
In the dark you can't see ugly, but you can feel fat
