Cool, I'll buy it. On second thoughts, I'll stick with my $5K stock standard 99 r6 thanks.

There are no 2 ways about it. 150,000 Euros or not. That is one foxy looking bike.

Why is there at least ONE cage driver every day that seems out to kill me?

Wow look at those forks. I could lick it like ice cream T_T

Not going to be able to compete in MotoGP with 200hp. You would need at least 30kg weight advantage to make up for the lack of power.

 Get a BMW S1000RR with a kit and Blackstone carbon fibre wheels and the BMW would be gone with about €120,000 left in the bank.

I doubt that LCR is looking to compete on this Craig tbh. They are perfectly capable of buying customer RCV directly from Honda. I would wager this is just for testing and rider fitness etc...

And an S1000RR with all that gubbins on it is still gonna get nowhere near a prototype Moto GP machine....I think you are wishfully thinking there mate..

heh - and how slow would it be with tony the turtle #24 on it?

Pagik... 15 superbikes out-qualified Rossi's GP11 (including 2 BMW's) if you compare last year's WSBK qualifying at Silverstone... they better be making the GP12 a lot quicker.

Using this bike as a basis for a special I am building

Got the blade

Black stone carbon wheels, carbon bodywork, I am using k tech forks and suspension and AP 6 piston caliper with narrow gauge discs are all on order

Will use that for the summer then save up for a few months and off to FW develpments for a super sport tune
