I would be more worried about how the bike handled than how it looks.
I've never been on a lowered bike that handled anywhere near the way it was sent to us.

how low are you trying to go? I’ve lowered all of my bikes with the exception of my bobber... i scrape the pegs enough as it is.
An inch...I live in Florida so we don’t have much twisties out here...my last bike was lowered too.

Man that looks nice. I was living in the destin area for a while, i had my ducati lowered but had to raise it back up when I replaced the taillights. I loved how it looked but when i put it back to stock height it handled so much better. But... completely different bike meant for totally different riding style.

I couldn't imagine lowering mine an inch. I guess it would look awesome on it's kickstand in the driveway, but don't think it would handle or be that great on a ride around my area.
