Hero Honda CBZ X-Treme: Go naked!

Have been thinking about the styling of the CBZ X-Treme. Realised that we're looking at the ugliest fairing ever to grace an Indian motorcycle. However, a (2006) Hornet-like front end, with a tightly packed instrument cluster and headlamp would probably look damn good on the bike and will take away some of the styling boo-boos. The other part I would change instantly is the funny X on the rear panel. Looking at the bike from the right side, just removing the <>< would instantly make it look hefty and clean. Still not gobsmacking, I agree, but a hell of a lot more presentable. Missed opportunity?
