It's actually a lot cooler looking than that 4 wheeled monstrosity that couldn't turn.

I'm also happy to see that Confederate made it through the Katrina set-back. Their facilities were completely wiped out and they relocated to another state.

Confederate bikes are expensive, but at least they actually work far better than any custom chopper.

The interesting thing is that it only weighs 430lbs (claimed). Which is damn impressive for a 1966cc cruiser styled motorcycle.

Rather be limited to the 167mph top speed of the Butale 1078 and save the balance for a bunch of DRZ400SMs for my supermoto track that is being planned in Ken's mom's back yard. She's gotta really nice view from her back porch.

Default Spending just for spending's sake...

I can think of 110 different ways to spend $110K. I could fill a whole garage with several awesome bikes. How much does the Desmosedici cost?

$72k for the good one, $42k for the ho-hum version.

I'll take the $42K one and add another 6 bikes to my stable. Thanks!
