They even have the outfits, too.

Yes, I've seen the article and read about it and the bike is fully functional and apparently goes upwards to something like 250 mph if I remember reading the article right.

The only thing I don't like about it is the 3 chains and 4 sprockets between the transmision and the drive wheel. Though with that configuration it would be hard to do it any other way, shafts would have too many universals at too sharp an angle, and hydraulic or electrical motors for power transfer would be to heavy and bulky.

The only problem i have with it is that i think it's too shiny...if it was a darker red and kinda flat (color) then it would look much better ^_^

i think if you had enough coinage to plunk down on that thing, a repaint would be just pocket change

There was something similar to this in development, that actually seemed practical, back in 2006. Not sure what became of it, the company site is gone and I don't see any current news articles.

Very cool bike

It would be pointless to get low on this bike, the seat looks like i can cruise on it. But the handle bar plus seat arrangement looks awkward.

If you want to knee drag, get a 600; liter bike would work too.

Still rather have a tomahawk.

That would actually be on par with a Bugatti Veyron, I think it should read 250km/h
which isn't that hard to reach with a Sportsbike 600cc engine

And forget using it to dragrace, that final transmission will have so much powerloss
on the rear wheel, the only thing you'll do is stretch the chain till it snaps

Don't get me started on THAT monstrocity: It's a car!
4 wheels, designed and built by a car manufacturer, it has 4 wheels, a car engine,
looks like ass and has 4 wheels
not to mention a $500,000 pricetag when noone EVER did more with it than can
be seen in it's promotional vid

A godawefull paperweight, I'd rather drive a $1,000,000 Reliant
