Wow. I wonder if Vic could do it with a better excuse for a seat?

If you read the text, they say it will never be produced, so it doesn't even need a seat. It doesn't look too bad, but no major manufacturer has the balls to produce a hardtail anyway, plus any 'minimalist design' needs to remove the electric starter from the design. Those aren't exactly minimalist.

Building this would have been a mucho better decision than building the 'Bad Vision'.

It reminds me of BMW's "Lo Rider" concept. Super-minimalist bike; then the buyer can add components to suit their taste. Overall, I think it's a good looking machine. Less is more.

Wussies! The coolest design study they've ever done and they won't build it. If yer skeerd then say yer skeerd.

To me it looks very much like a Confederate.

I like it.

Can't afford it.

But, I like it.

I agree it looks like one and I like it. Needs a rear shock but I suspect I couldn't afford it even if they built it and my layoff notice got lost in mail room :)

I thought the name would be the victory Confed when I first saw it. Total Confederate rip off sans carbon fiber.
