Saw one out at death valley. Talked to the owner. He said it handles like a snowmobile more than a bike. This guy was like 60 and I think its the perfect solution for those who might be having trouble with the weight of a goldwing or some such.

Rotax 990cc motor similar to what aprilia was using in their literbikes. Keep in mind it weighs 700 lbs or so so don't expect sportbike acceleration.

I think it might be a fun touring rig as well, you could probably get some serious luggage on that. Just forget about lane splitting if you live in CA, it ain't gonna happen.

 Looks like fun. I agree with BS, great luggage hauler. I can see lots of Pac coast touring...

Definitely yay. Living in Atlanta it's not really safe to lane split, and I've to many knee injuries to risk a crotch rocket again anyway.

It looks really fun to me, and 4 secs to 60 ain't bad.
