The "best" ratings are usually focused more on function than style, but your underlying point is well taken.
A credible review clearly outlines the criteria and weighting used for evaluation. This review doesn't do any of that. The closest I found was in discussing the RT, they say "For 2019, less touring bike is more". Really??
In my humble opinion "style" is a very important in there buying decisions. If not, Harley would not be the sales leader.
BMW, in my opinion again, is starting to understand the style motivation.
