If someone is going to buy it I think Honda and others will figure out a way to build it.



There has got to be some lesson they can learn from giant ship diesels or something that will let them build it.



I'm not sure vibration is really a problem... who cares about vibration if the bike is just going to be parked in front of a bar.

Bolt the steering head to the front cylinder head, make the rear cylinder a sissy bar, and upholster the crankcase for a seat.

eh, I'm sure the Viper's pistons are bigger than a 6.0L V8 diesel. Though I agree, they'll find a way around it.

Take a couple cylinders off an R-4360 Pratt & Whitney and stick 'em on an HD style non-unit lower end.



Works out to about 300 cubic inches. Car alarms will have to be re-designed.



I could dig it....

I think Suzuki's (oops I mean Bouelvard's) M109 is currently claiming the largest piston even though it's engine isn't the largest displacement.

Sounds like this trend is nearing its conclusion.



Maybe the next big trend will be bikes that handle, have useful features, well thought out accessories, are somewhat user serviceable, etc.



Then again maybe not...

That is the first thing that I thought of when I saw the lead in to the article:



Just stick a couple of Wasp Major juggs on there and you'll be golden...



Jesus.



Add in the meth / water injection while you're at it. You know, if you're feeling feisty after the trip to the bar.
