My first reaction was to say you were full of it, except for the master cylinders, which gotta go, but then I went back and zoomed in on the pictures, and haven looked more closely, I gotta agree regarding the stupid "fairing" thing and the thickness of the headlight ring.



I still like the tank though. The pipe is bigger than I would like, but I assume it would need to be that big to comply with some of Europe's more restrictive noise standards.



I still love the look overall.

>>Get a load of these sewer pipes. Right off a school bus<<



Last time I rode a school bus (admittedly many years ago), they didn't have flush toilets -- thus no sewer pipes. Of course, that was long enough ago that houses were just getting them.

Can't recall where I saw it, but there was a recent report (again) that Duc will produce a street version of the Supermono single, with a supercharger. If it comes out anything like the original Supermono, I wanna get my name on the list!

I suspect that the end can includes a cat., like the new BMW 650 street bike. In europe this bike would have to meet the euro2 emission specs. Look for more of these new bikes with the cats. camouflaged in the muffler. (i.e. Honda VFR, Ducati 999 , etc...)

I got me one of them new fangled space age bikes that uses air in the tires. I'll let you in on a little secret...to reduce weight and of course improve performance....well they say it needs 35 lbs of air in the tires....I put in only 5 (in each), et voila, 60 useless lbs saved! Now as it is that much lighter, it handles that much better...

Honda did the front, at least in concept with the new american sport. Techno-tour de force. Too bad its futher from reality than this Guzzi.
