I don't think the green has much "panache".

I guess they figure it's race-proven because they've raced it before.

Oh Mr Leno, I have a bike to sell you!

You can park it next to the Tomahawk.



Be neat to ride one.

I need to find a converter from Nm to lb/ft and from kW to hp. Seriously. Or maybe we could standardize...

Has a FP-1 finished a race?



I know they were experimenting with afterburners to get a little more speed, but the other racers were complaining about the runt paint jobs and warped visors. Will the street version get off-road pipes with flame arrestors?

Does it belch flames out the tail pipe when rolling off the throttle?

And I criticized the Ducati Multistrada for being hit with the ugly stick? I need to rethink that....hmmm...yes, the ugly was lent to the design team of the Petronas FP1! $45K for ugly. Yes, Jay Leno should buy this piece 'o crap and add it to his mindless collection. And furthermore I'm sick of hearing about Jay Leno. You'd think he's some kind of motorcycle guru when all he is a comedian, an actor, he who adds little or nothing to society.

Actually he does a great Bill Clinton impression.



That should be worth something.
