I think it's time for you MOFos who keep clamoring for an American Sportbike to built to step up with some investment capital.

They can title the book "How to Make a Million Making American Sportbikes". Start with 20 million.

Default Re: Another American Superbike: Roeh

from the way it sounds:

carbon fiber, ohlins, marchesini, etc..

it would have to cost a WHOLE lot of money to buy one.

my guess is $20,000+

and, with only 120 HP, it'll be a hard sell.

How bout just investing in buying yourself a Buell. And for those of you who already own one, would you consider buying another American Sportbike in the future?

It's like a slower, less developed Ducati. I didn't see much in the way of inovative engineering there.



The XB-12R is cooler, I think (even though its motor blows).

That's great, but why is the front fairing so ugly? It looks like a surprised duck.

Default Re: Another American Superbike: Roeh

I've read a couple of shorts on this bike and the manufacturer is going to sell the bike for just shy of $25,000 according to the info I've read. But they are also soliciting investors. Your call. Should be a nice bike but I'd have a little more confidence in it after a complete road test was done by a MO or some other rag.

Default Another American Success in the Making: Roeh?

On the outside chance that this guy is successful in getting investors, builds a bunch of these things, they take off, and he realizes riches and success beyond his wildest dreams, will this then be another motorcycle company that is "an example of everything that is wrong with america?"



Just curious.

Well, MVAugusta and Benelli seem to get by with limited sales of very expensive bikes of no better performance than much cheaper Japanese models. Why shouldn't Roeh try to corner that market? I'd rather see American bikes from that class on the road, given my druthers.



If those chopper manufacturers can stay in business selling inferior overpriced, and in some cases dangerous, schlock there may be a market for this thing.
