This a an awesome time to be a motorcyclist! Anything seems possible... There may have been a comparable time in the sport, but I suspect you'd have to go back a long time to find it.

You're right, man. We are reduced to complaining about the most nit-picky shyt. All those people who were whining about the air-cooled Buells would have given their right nut to have one 20 years ago. There's never been a better selection of reliable and well performing machines in all categories.

Looks like the Buell/H-D Gestapo got to the "insurgents." It must suck when they've kept this thing under wraps for so long only to have it leaked one day before the official unveiling.

A few more details I've picked up: The motor is definitely a Rotax collaboration. Twin radiators under the side shrouds with air routed through the scoops. Still belt drive, left side (nice), and supposedly the motor is capable of big power but is in a milder state of tune due to emissions (bet there will be a race kit). No oil in swingarm for obvious reasons. Test riders love the bike.

That is all for now.
