it is a mix between v twin like in a Monster and design from MV Brutale.....
Anything is possible.
Now the business needs to be profitable. And mannufacturing has to be volume based to make enough turnover to make it fly.
The new Monster can be seen at the Bologna factory manufacturing lines as soon as it is starting to get ready.
What it is , I do not know, but some hot talk has raised from local internet boards, to we keep Monster as Sportster as to be always kind of thing or total upgrade has to be made.
If it is total, then back to start, design and economical analysis. Unfortunately, todays "money is everything" world we see more "safe" solutions that "custom made as stock" issues.... it is up to the client to do what ever later, even the laws of traffic control and inspections are getting more strict so you cannot really legally touch the bike without screwing up some mixtures, security as a cutting a frame, or like here now, if you put different size of tires, you need to visit inspection center to get it added to your papers....
Exactly! Here in Florida, especially down in Miami, you get alot of guys that buy too much bike, lay them down and total them. I can pick up a 996 with only superficial body damage (which i'd replace / remove all that anyway) for around $4000!! What a cool monster that would become.
I've been wanting to build a chopper, my wife wants me to buy a Moto Guzzi next, and then there's this sbk convert that looks so appealing. What to do . . ..
I am not a fan, too robocop. What they should do is take the 998 with high pipes etc. and convert it to the monster look (rounder lines, no body work). Keep the blood lines (the monster is a 888 frame...).
My feet would rest on the frame of that bike! (I'm only 5'2"). That's one tall dude that can ride that bad boy the seat height is just so high. Plus, the seat looks so far back. But the overall looks of the bike are awesome
