Default Look What They Did to Seru's Bike!!

They stole his engine and made a red-hot motorbike with it:

Enigma 1050 very British Motorbike

You have to love British marketing. Under Technical / Engine they put this on top:

The 1050 has its drawbacks. It was first laid down in 1997, before the universal adoption of stacked gearboxes gave us shorter engines. Because of its length, we are going to miss our ideal 1400mm wheelbase target by a small amount. Having said that, Ducati’s 1198 has a wheelbase of 1430mm and you don’t hear many complaints about the way it handles.

Then they go on to say how great it is:

The Engine - a Triumph1050 Triple | Enigma 1050

They don't mention the price, but I'm betting it's another $50k+ custom built with 30% Unobtainium alloys.
