First of all, I am too damn old to even consider such a machine.

However, I'm an engineer so I can't help from being absolutely intrigued with the technology and performance. 140hp from 599cc! I can't wait to see some road tests. "Unfortunately" it is available to any 16 year old that can get his hands on $9500.00. :hmmm:

Check out the videos!

The cool thing is that some of the technology will eventually trickle down to their cruisers! :chopper:

I work on winged Mini Sprint cars.
We use 4 cylinder Motorcycle motors in the 600cc and 1200cc class.

We can find these motors all the time with under 2000 miles on them were the bike was wrecked but the motor survived.
I don't even want to know what happened to the riders.!!


Awesome sounding race cars coming down the straights turning 12-16k rpm.
