Let's hope they perform better than the VR1000.

Actually, I think they'll be able to sell the initial 50 fairly easily--if the bike actually works.



Can't blame them for charging 40K with such a limited production run and Ohlins, Marchesini, CF bodywork, et. al., but, like you, I wonder if enough American sportbike buyers will pay the extra dough that these bikes will cost even at fairly high production levels, especially when the 2010 GSXR-1000 will make 180 hp at the whell and have a race-ready traction control system.

yeah, but I still think the VR's paintjob - black one side, orange the other - was pretty cool...

Hmmm. Did you read the comments from one of the guys that worked on the project?



"The actual fuel tank is located under the seat, which is why it only has 3.6 gallons of fuel capacity. Room is a big issue."



Biiiiiig engine.

I'll be back in Chicago for a week in May... Don't worry maybe we can do a demo ride together.. Now that I have a team there and St. Louis, I have to visit every quarter at least. I might get a team in SoCal soon.. I can visit kblog (MO) headquarters..
