On closer inspection, that plate assembly looks like it bolts underneath the exhaust, so no hacksaw required. With all that over-designing, couldn't they find a better place to locate the rear turn signals? Were they too exhausted or something?



Of course, those traffic sign-sized licence plates they use there don't help matters much. Ick.



Oh, and "TNT" is still a dumb name.

PRESS RELEASE



Rome, Italy: Italian Minister of Moto-Aesthetics Fabrizio Bellamoto today announced a blockbuster 3-way trade involving two of Italy's most renowned marques, and Japanese giant Yamaha. The transaction will send MV Agusta design chief Massimo Tamburini to Yamaha, while Yamaha's R1 design team will head to Ducati. Current Ducati chief designer Pierre Terblanche will fill an unspecified position at MV Agusta. When asked for details about Terblanche's new duties, MV Agusta CEO Claudio Castiglioni replied, "Something with a pail."



Yamaha spokesman Bukkake Seruzawa said of the transaction, "We are very excited to acquire the services of Massimo Tamburini, designer of the landmark 916 and F1 series. We were understandably reluctant to part with the design team of our beautiful R1, but let's face it, that was a fluke. I mean, we're Japanese, for cripe's sake. We're good for one soulful design every 20 years or something. We need to play the odds."



Of the departure of Pierre Terblanche, Ducati majority shareholder Texas Pacific Group spokesman Billy Joe Robideaux said, "I don't know what the hell we were thinking when we hired that South African frog. I could'a chopped me up a toy 916, swallowed it, and crapped a better re-design. But we're happier than pigs in sh-t that the deal happened like it did, see'ins how the only other offer we had for him was the assistant groundskeeper from Piaggio."



When asked how his company would benefit from trading one of motorcycling's most renowned designers for one of the most controversial, Agusta's Castiglioni said, "It will be worth it to have that _face di culo_ under my thumb. It is my duty as an Italian to see that he never comes within a kilometer of a sketchpad."

It sucks it was raining, but that guy was doing a pretty decent balance wheelie.

Heh heh. And he thought he had the most exotic streetfighter around.

Yup, poor buzz jumped the gun, now instead of stylin' with the Brutale, he'll be just another bike when this Benelli's on the scene

Amazing how fast you can go in the rain. Once you learn the bikes limits and slide characteristics you can crank it up pretty good.

Judging by the wheelie clip it sounds like my mother getting stuck in the mud with her Briggs&Stratton tiller.
