Yep, it's a project years in the making. I see it in magazines at least once or twice every year for the past few years. Supposedly it's kinda like a cruiser with the rideability and performance of a sportbike.

Think big fat mamma'z on crack running around in bikini's! :laughing

Looks silly and I would NEVER buy one.

Still, I'm looking forward to reading some test ride results in any one of the mags. :eek:

Cycle World tested it.
The one thing I thought was wierd was that it runs a D207 180 rear, but the recommended air pressure for the tire was like, 23psi :confused They said that made the thing feel squirrely in high speed corners, but thats what the guy who made the thing recommended so they left it alone :p

Was that a recent Cycle World? I must have missed it.


Sadly, it looks like an interesting idea went very wrong. Some guy had some money and old parts to play with and thought of something original. It looks like the results pretty much stink. I remember that they were claiming all sorts of crazy predicted specs quite some time ago. Seems they couldn't deliver.

Plus, it's just so stupid looking.

I have to admit the design did look kinda interesting, but the for price what peaked my interest sadly went away. :shake

Actually I did too. :shake

They said that sucker is very loud and annoying too. It'd be like driving my dad's harley. I hate loud bikes. :rolleyes: I wouldn't even want to test ride that sucker.

I've got a clapped-out FZR 600 in my driveway that will probably do 140 mph. I doubt it's pushing anywhere close to 70 hp.

"The riding position and long wheelbase are designed to do away with the whole , "wheelie-stoppie" effect of riding a modern short wheelbase sportsbike with their high centre of gravity."




No wheelies? No stoppies? Where's the fun in that?:(
