    For those with a thirst for new "off the shelf" production iron and play chess check this out :D

    Nice piece of Unobtainium at a bargain price...will be on the showroom floor in your area soon...those who do not like smoking tires (Big Lew) or scraped knee cups (SledDog) being the sole exceptions need not apply...ENJOY! :rofl

    Thanks for stirring up memories of old NEWHD74FAN. I would still like to get one more sport bike before its all over....:p


    Generating 195 horsepower at 10,750 rpm and 98.1 lb-ft torque at 9000 rpm, dry weight of 361 lbs.

    What a blast it would be. Bet it does not get any better than that......:s
    And the sound is so sweeeeeet...

    To keep this in perspective, imagine a 1000cc motorcycle with 4 cylinders like CBR1000 spinning up to 10,000 RPM making about 150HP, the valves being the size of nickels...the bores/pistons being maybe 2 1/2" across.

    Now imagine a twin with slugs moving that fast with better than 3 1/2" of reciprocating weight and long stroker motor between your legs. with valves about the size of quarters and half dollars, desmodromic lever action opening and closing allows for no valve float so they are held in check...yikes! :58:
