    Never been a fan of the Sportster's look but that photo has just changed my mind.

    Or the other way around?

    The Cabrio base has significantly better electric windows and roof arrangement.
    The only improvement that could have been made here was to have used the Sportster nose cone, and have the chassis support BMW running gear rather than Sierra.
