I hope they do ok. There are so many brands out there now that I don't know how successful a 'newcomer' can be. The market just keeps on fragmenting.

Default I really hate orange!

Nice looking bike. I only hope that KTM sold all of their orange paint to MZ. That way, when the RC-8 finally comes out, I won't want to puke. Hello: Orange, it's a trim color!

Nice synopsis, Gabe. How were the vibes? Same sweet switchgear as the 1000S? Did it have the MZ trademark super-heavy-needs-to-be-replaced-soon can?



By the way, thatÂ’s some red hot action in the videoÂ…

since I'm a Duc snob I thought hmm....

fairing doesn't block the wind.

only 115 at the rear wheel.

mufflers too low, they look goofy.

although I'm strangely attracted to the orange paint?

maybe in hopes of an R8 in the near future?

oh well.

another small volume manufacturer trying to get a piece of the American Pie.

at over 10K for a naked, it's gonna be a long hard road.

it's not in my 'wish list' for '06

to continue..

not to say there aren't 10K+ naked bikes out there (monster for one)

it's just that the UJM consortium has a lock on 8K to 10K rocket ships

maybe if I was Warren Buffet I'd pick one up. ... just to be different.

I have my eye on a SR4 that's screaming at me every time I walk through the Duc dealer!!!!!!!!

please stop me now. not another money pit!

Default I'll Leave Red-Hot Action to the Porn Sites...

The switchgear was the same, (very nice quality) and the motor was pretty smooth. I don't know about the mufflers. I assume they are a little lighter than what they put on the Skorpions, as they're muffling two cylinders with two cans.

$10K+ is a lot to pay for odd-ball exclusiveness - unless you consider a hunting vest as a fashion statement, that is. Though I have to admit that the color would come in handy, if you're broke down in traffic. Now (considering the name of the parent company, Hong Leong) I'll be spending the next week trying to get the concept of a bike called the Hung Long out of my head.
