Is your google broken? It took me under a minute to locate the bike. You might want to call Geek Squad and get it fixed. It was a Honda VTX concept bike.

I thought it was the Farmington "Preying Mantis Super III," produced in limited numbers by the Farmington Motor Company, Farmington, IL.

The PMS III was well known for it's astounding acceleration and horrific headshake at speeds over 45 mph. Of the 13 built, only two are left; the others were recalled by Farminton and remanufactured into lawn edgers. A class action lawsuit, brought by PMS victims, is still in the courts today.

Its.......A FACT!

Because he has had a year to speak up otherwise. Your spam links too will be here a year later, no need to repost.

Design studies are usually just art excercises. But since the VTX is a real bike I bet it's not hard for Honda to fashion a working bike from an existing bike. Tank forks and fenders probably took them 6 days not including paint and chrome.
