This bike's got a lot of potential

That looks cool!

Hehe, love the answer to FAQ1
Quote:

Why is it so expensive?

It’s not expensive, it’s costly. Which means a major expenditure, as is always the case when buying a product of the highest quality.
A product may be defined “expensive” when it unjustifiably exceeds the perceived value; a product is “costly” when it requires particular care in manufacture but is worth what it costs.

<br /><br />&quot;Structural engineering is the art of molding materials we don't holly understand, into shapes we can't fully analyze, so as to withstand forces we can't really assess, in such a way that the community at large has no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance.&quot;&nbsp; ...Jim Amrhein

Yeah, I saw that. Its basically a scooter. It does mention something about selling a rolling chasis. You could throw a 1000ds in it.

I think the standard model looks ok, but that racing model is hot.

Re: This bike's got a lot of potential

I didn't look at the website, just the pic,

but isn't it like a 30hp single?

Doesn't it weigh like 200lb wet?

Sounds like alright motivation to me...

(I love the idea of light weight, low power sporty bikes.)

Whatever I just typed was probably meant to be humorous with a tinge of sarcasm, so, please take it that way. It's also not intended as a personal attack, so, don't take it personally. It is afterall, just a semi-anonymous post on the internet. <br /><br />&quot;everybody needs a thumper&quot; - me.<br />No more monsters at my house.

I can't find a weight stat, but its got 54 Hp. They have a "tuned" version that puts out almost 70 Hp.

Edit: weight is 135 kilos dry

Re: This bike's got a lot of potential

So that's ~300 lb.



Figure 300lb+50lb fuel/oil+200lb rider = 550 lb, or about 10.2 lb/hp... (standard motor)

That's not bad. Probably about the same pow to weight as a M800 or so,
probably a little quicker around a turn...

It'd be a fun bike for sure.
