  1. The second part of our Netrider bike survey created a bit of a statistical dilemma.

    Based purely on the most votes, it would be a V-twin.

    Despite this, the two combined four cylinder categories out voted the twins. So you could argue that the engine should be a four and the configuration should be put to the test at a later stage

    In addition to this, you could take and average and round off. In this case 3.48. In which case we would be looking at a triple.

    Having noted all that, I did specify the configuration, not just the number of cylinders, so it looks like the Netrider bike is a Sports Touring V-twin.

    So now lets define capacity. Once again I have designated a rough mass to the capacity, in order to keep a bit of reality about it.

    Forget about licence restrictions.

    Have fun.
  2. This is a fun game. I look forward to:

    Netrider bike 4: what drive system,
    Netrider bike 5: Carbies or EFI,
    Netrider bike 6: Steel trelis frame or Twin-spar Alloy...
  3. Are we doing a group order at the end? :wink:
  4. If I get about 500 deposits I might! :LOL:

    I'm a mechanical Engineer and a rev head, who rides, so I quite often ponder what type of bike I would build if I were a bit more cashed up.

    The problem is I can see merit in most designs, so I was interested in what the motorcyle community would like.
  5. :-k ... but... if it's going to be a K1200S, none of the above fits...

    Or am I missing something?
  6. Obvously
  7. I just rialised that 1050c+ went missing from the poll. DOH!
