I'm holding out for a Cummins diesel. Better mileage.

Not to mention that the Rapom won't be able to tow your fifth wheel worth beans. You need that Cummins for Manly Man work!

Only 1000hp from a supercharged 8.2L V-8?



Hell, isn't Buschur getting something like ~790hp from a Turbo'd DSM 2.4L I-4..........?



I'd demand my money back.

With the right side exhaust header on top of the radiator, I'd venture to guess that that thing is not able to cruise much more than the 10 miles to the strip before it boils all of its coolant.

The sport bike version gets more HP.



This one has been "de-tuned for torque".

I ride for economy. Will it get better mileage than my Vespa?

Default Oh yes, the world needed one of those too.

Proof that some Europeans don't know what to do with their free time any more than the rest of us.
