The reason the air-cooled bikes looked more aesthetically balanced, left-to-right, is the water cooling plumbing on the LH side. If Ducati would just use the new engine cases from the XDiavel that re-routes all that exposed plumbing inside for the Monster family we'd all be happier.
Indeed. I wish Ducati would do exactly that with their next iteration.
