i've always wondered why the rads on V fighters cant be turned to face forward as i think they would look better. ive only seen one on the blade forum done that way

Without the fairing and internal fairing air channels I suspect they are very inefficient in their naked form as very little air passes through them.
No bike (yet).

It's about packaging. There's no room between front head and front wheel when the forks are fully compressed.
It can be done with a short one, or a single storm rad turned sideways but a full length rad won't fit.
Because Honda have to sell a bike that works in all climates including hotter ones, they couldn't get away with just one small rad.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.
