    I reckon it looks worse than your average kawasucky :p .
    But with 320 HP @52,000 rpm (286 HP @ rear wheel) it should be tad quicker than an Across :?

  2. Looks like a steenky pocket bike, but a diesel ??. DAMNNNNN ?
    and to answer your questionI will ride anything with 2 wheels and a engine.
  3. Nah mate, it runs on diesel/kero, but it's a Rolls Royce turbine... hence the 52000rpm

    First time I've seen it MartyH, but I've seen a few attempts at fitting turbines to things that shouldn't have them... like yank pommie tanks for example.

    It looks better with the fairing off.. cop that ya streetfighter's :D

  4. With such a looong wheelbase, it doesn't look like it would be easy or particularly enjoyable to ride. Interesting.
  5. funny that coming from someone that rides an across :LOL:
  6. Jeez it took ya long enough!! :wink:
