I recently found myself sitting in a room with a who's who of the moto-journalism world, while we patiently stared at seven covered vehicles with various shapes. "Are those magnesium Marchesini wheels?" asked one. "Is that an R1 streetfighter?" asked another... we sat, we guessed, we waited for late journalists to arrive. Then it was time. What followed is little more than a blur now. The covers came off one-by-one and and our senses were assaulted by a bewildering array of wonderments. Cool things, Funky things, Fast things and all of it was top-secret. Until today.
