Someone give Erik Buell access to a Revolution engine please.
I don't want to sound Harley prejudice or anything, but no one will buy that contraption for eleven grand.

I'm not in the least bit attracted to that. I thought Harley owns Buell to prevent this sort of attrocity from happening. Priced like a cruiser, too.

Maybe I would be more inclined if it were wearing a Buell badge.

It's not ugly or anything. It actually looks kinda beefy with those front forks and the cafe rear, but for $3000 less you can get a R6 that will outperform it in every way possible (except noise :biglol ) with half the CC's and probably 200lbs.

$11,000 for a Sporty just seems excessive to me.

Something's wrong with that pic. I don't know what, but something's wrong.
cool bike though!

edit: Pipes on the wrong side. it's an inverse pic.
I knew something didn't look right.

No its not. Its a different bike all together. The pipes are on the side with the kick stand and shift lever on the second pic. the first pic they are actually on the other side. the second bike does look kinda cool but I dont like the looks of the first one at all.

I thought I was wrong once, but I must have been mistaken.

Okay, the bike is just weird. The heads are wrong, the pipes are on the wrong side, but the plugs are correct... I want to see more of that thing.

I'm always interested in creative engineering.

I like the XR1200s. I would hate the small fuel tank, but other than that I like it. Then again I also own a HD Street Rod, go figure. Ride Safe!!!
