Leave it to the French to produce an aircooled long stroke V-Twin. Don't they know that V-Twins are dead? How does this square with the widespread belief in the natural superiority of all things French? They also briefly produced another V-Twin called the Vogon or Voxan or something.



There's a nice picture of one here. Hope they bring them over to the US.

At least they value their engineers. Here they make them design cupholders for 3 years.
