I recall a cycle mag in the early '80s- I think Cycle World- relentlessly criticizing the bike for it's size. They did concede some praise after one with a hot-rod VW engine compared favorably to the V-Max at the drags.

Fast forward a few decades to now and of course cc's = scrotum capacity; I don't recall any such criticism heaped upon monstrosities like Boss Hoss' and other factory bikes LARGER than the Amazonas. Go figure.
