"experience the MotoCzysz lifestyle."



Oh, gawd.



What, exactly, is the "MotoCzysz lifestyle"? The thing hasn't even hit the track yet.



When does he start talking about "heritage"? After the flag drops?

I can't help but think Bimota styling. I've got to say, the rear suspension is pretty trick.

Got to love unveiling your bike and your clothing line at the same time.

Didn't Ariel or somebody build a 'square four' that had two cranks? I seem to remember some kind of oddball Yamaha racer that had the same thing? Not sure what the patent would be for.

Actually, most have said the front suspension system is the most promising. I like the fresh approach he's taking, but it remains to be seen if this thing will work.



And why don't they say what kind of racebike this is? Last I heard, they were thinking WSB, not MotoGP.

Ah, okay. A quick trip to their site. Interestingly enough, they're planning to manufacture an aftermarket version of the front suspension for existing sport bikes.



And they say, indeed, that the prototype is for MotoGP. Guess they changed their minds again. I wonder if that engine concept is somehow more workable in 800cc.

I agree with you, amazing. But HD doesn't want to do this. They make money already. Counter rotating solutions aren't even in their minds with the traditional V-twin.

The patent is for the design it self. A freind that was working for Kenny Deer said the bikes offset motor makes it fire like a twin. BIG engine pulses, I guess. It's quite clever. Those guys went out and hired a few F1 engineers to develop the motor. Should be ineresting to say the least.
