In those particular pictures, the hood was actually unlatched. We need to update those pictures. If you look at any of the other slingshots in the listings, The white, or the orange, The hood is latched and you can see that the gap and the middle headlights look normal.
I was really excited for this product hoping the price point would be lower than the Voodoo front bumper...I was going to pull the trigger immediately...now I am kind of in limbo. If the price comes down a bit I will probably jump on it. Or if I just get a wild hair I might pull the trigger.
