That is quite reasonable! 404lbs and 193 hp?!? That would hurt me fast!

Saw that this morning, that is a very good price really and it will take away some market share from the big 4. Hell, even Ducatistas are eyeballing the thing!

It's a Beemer... I don't think the Fairings are symmetrical... doesn't only one side have those gangster fins? 195hp, that cholo could be pink with butterflies and rainbows on it, I'd still want one!

Kevin Cameron of Cycle World has an excellent write-up of both the engineering and development logic that went into this machine. Really detailed, fascinating stuff.

I got to see one in person...

...sit on it, and see the presenter start it and rev her up. Sounds GORGEOUS. It was down in Tooele (too-will-uh), UT for the AMA superbike event. Very comfortable bike, and yes, VERY light. Seemed like butter between the legs it was so comfortable. My buddy made a somewhat disheartening comment about the headlight design (again, not knowing the reasoning behind it) and it just happened that one of the chief engineers on the bike overheard him. Big Mistake! Actually, the guy was really cool. He said he just loved it when people said stuff like that and he went on for 45 minutes into the actual design of the bike. They redesigned the air ram intake thing and were able to make the fairings something like 14% slimmer than any other bike (don't quote me on that, that's from memory), plus shave a bunch of weight off the bike. They also had an engine there that was side-cut so you could see the actual design of the engine on the inside. He told us the pricing on it then - same as what's on the website. Adding all the options, he said it was about $16k. He asked what we currently rode. I mentioned that (at that time) I had a VTX 1300C. He said, "If you've never ridden a bike this light, with this much HP, I HIGHLY recommend you keep the DTC (dynamic traction control) setting on 'rain' mode (softest power curve) for at least two months, until you realize the potential of the bike". That's saying something. They had one in metallic grey and another in carbon/black. Blackie was just singing to me!

Definitely one of the highlights of the day! First glance at the bike it made me wonder why it looked the way it did and I couldn't quite tell if I liked it or not. After hanging around for a while, sitting on it, listening to her purr, she grew on me. Just like my 919 did.

If I didn't have my wife and kids on my mind, I'd have one of these on pre-order. The engineer at the track said if we were serious, he could get us on a prioritized list with one of the local dealerships in Utah that he had dinner with the night before.

Anyways, long story. Sweet bike.

...some pics...

I'm the guy in the green polo with silver sunglasses (yes, I know, we ALL had green shirts on that day; we felt like freaks o' nature). They wouldn't let us sit on the black one - the one they started up, only the gray one.

Sorry, they are cell phone pics. I had video, too, but it wasn't worth posting.
