Pamle who??!! This baby has bigger jugs than the whole Baywatch-crew combined. It may not be my favorite kind of bike, but when it comes to a bike that has almost the same volume on EACH cylinder as my Sprint RS does on all three it deserves RESPECT.



I'm looking forward to a test drive...

Hey genius,

Honda didn't exist then.

Default 102 hp/ 101 ft-lbs enough?

With output like this, swoopy styling, real brakes, and suspension and ground clearance to enable serious cornering, HH should give the Honda a run for its money. A quoted dry weight of only 240kg (528lbs) might just enable those 102 ponies to seriously embarrass the Honda. Why any twin cylinder unfaired motorcycle needs to weigh over 700 lbs is a mystery to me.

By the way, it's now a Hunwick Harrop, the partnership with Hallam having ended because of a difference of opinion over whether to concentrate on performance or more street-biased bikes. Check out the website at www.hunwickharrop.com for more info.

Default V-twin

I would like to thank all those who relate any v-twin to Harley and not Indian.

Interesting, I bought a VFR also. Not that I really care about cruisers mind you. I was waiting for a FZ1 and then rode a VFR and decided no inline four could be this good. I really think you have to have owned a number of bikes to FULLY understand how great the VFR is.

going by your manly name, & your "RiceH8ter" (double 't' here you brain giant, no?), you certainly believe you are 'it'. but now everybody knows you're one big *******.

keep up the good work.

I think we understand that this was just a preview but in order to make any real hard opinions on this bike more solid information is required. After all I have a Freightliner with a lot of chrome and power will run on the top end well above the speed limit but is a real stone in the 1/4 mile if you get my drift.i

Hey Realbiker, sounds like you have spent too much time sniffing exhaust fumes, or you have hit your head one too many times. You need to get with the program pal. Your faithful H-D is working in conjunction with the Germans to help replace the antiquated,underpowered technology that is currently pushing your ignorant ass around the block. If the wording in this post is too difficult for you, I can use smaller words and then you can read real slow.
