Default Stock Buell TT

I can't see any accessories or anything that's been added or removed when I compare it to the photos from the Buell site, so no, I think it's the stock TT.



Stay tuned for Pete's report on it from the introduction in January!

I'm down for one of those Black & Yellow Benelli TREKs... sweet looking DP. It's too bad the Guzzi Griso's lines are marred right from right below the cylinder heads by whatever black box elements those are... ruins the whole curvaceousness of the bike.

Default Re: 2-Hour Charge, 68-Mile Range, 62-mph Top Speed

The Vectrix sounds like a winner if they can bring the price down closer to that of the large gas-powered scooters.



It takes two hours for a full charge (about 20 cents' worth of electricity), which will give you a 68-mile range at urban speeds (25 mph).



If you got half that range with a mix of highway/urban riding, that's 34 miles for 20 cents, or 0.006 cents per mile.



Even if you rode 500 miles a week, it would only cost you three dollars!

i dont know; since Highland is making a dirt track bike and the USA is the hotbed of dirt tracking, it would seem there is a chance it will come here.

I figured since they are a small Swedish company, the chances are quite small that they would have someone available to distribute it to US dealers.

I'll take the "Honda," if you know what I mean.

You may well be right;but is there much dirt tracking in Europe? There maybe at the amateir level;I just havent heard about it. Id like to see it here since Im a dirt track fan;it would be neat to see a purpose built twin take on the XR750's. i was hoping the KTM twin would take em on but so far a serious effort hasnt materialized. The Suzuki twins are making progress and the Aprilia effort shows promise but Im not sure these efforts will bear fruit.
