It was just a matter of time before someone shoehorned a VROD motor into a small frame....no shortage of power here!

that is awesome. Bout time someone did something performance oreinted with that motor (aside from Roheor or however you spell it). Not sure what I think of that gooseneck frame though.

So I know a cat named Dan Hurda who is a drive trane engineer for Buell. A couple years ago I asked him why Buell didn't use the Vrod lump in a sportbike. His response was "It's too heavy, the engine weighs more than an XB1...."

Seems like typical "Company" thinking to me. I give him a raft of shit for it now......any chance I get actually. One of these days he'll quit taking my calls...ha!

Smaller diameter front wheel, a bit larger tank and a bullet fairing and this would be cool as hell.

It's only cool as heck at this point.....

there was a company in france doing sprty vmaxes with chain drive conversions. Then they got really wilde with custom frame and suspension designs similar to a Tesi 2d.

when you factor in all the custom work no matter the motor a custom bike always ends up costing the same.

like the maxi size motor but, that seat, tail and rear wheel all need help.

Thanks,

It would be better to just copy the original, VR1000. I'm surprised no one is making replica's?
