    What does that frame do when you release the 140 ponies? Besides mufflers I'd like to see some stiffening of the frame

    The frame is painted the same colour as Bianchi bicycles, that stiffens it plenty and unlike welding tubes and gussets its light weight. Is there no one else who thinks this bike is awesome?

    dare i say that as fucked up as i find the thing, it's still, better than the hawk in the background. or any other background to be blatant.

    different - yes

    awesome - yes

    pretty - um....er....not really

    the geometry feels off to me for some reason. could just be the wide angle lens the photog shot it with.

    The tank cutout also baffles me, esp since it is an FI bike and the line to the pump comes from the rear of the tank aft of the cutout. If there was a worse place for it I cannot think of one.

    that rear cowl is so ugly I want to punch someone in the face.

    With a pair of lower power beer goggles it kind of has that Ducati GT look to it. The tank has to be a little bit bigger.

    Am I missing something here? Where’s the fuel cut off valves?

    I think the gas tank is cutout the same way on the other side as well to clear the intake horns, and yes, the fuel line exiting on the side of the tank where your thigh is going to reside is probably not great idea. Otherwise I love it and it is unlikely to have Ducati like " no feel from the front end due to too stiff a frame " problems.
