I like the looks of this bike but I think the KTM Superduke is a better bike

Racer, I don't doubt Confederate takes speed seriously and I wasn't implying Ecosse has a faster bike. All I said was at one point they were the fastest from 0-60.

I wish I had that kind of coin though.

I don't like the name or the company. I know too much about their past and their quality is not that great...IMHO...maybe I'm just biased

White347LX - Air cooled V twin with exhaust just inside your right thigh?

No thanks.


With all that HP the engine gets really hot. The pipes are wrapped though.

I'm just saying I like the bikes looks. I wouldn't buy it for that price. I still rather have a good supermoto then a crotch rocket. A naked street fighter or standard like the V max would be fine too.

 190 HP and 340 pounds seems like a potent combination. I'm sure there are plenty of bikes that powerful but they don't look  as 22nd century as that thing.

I just wonder if it works even as well as something more conventional. I think I'd ask if there was a rear fender option. Who needs a stripe up your back from anything that tire picks up and throws off?

That confederate looks like a dog taking a shit.

The BMW 800st? Why buy that when the VFR is better for less money?
