Traverston V-Rex goes into production

Think a standard Harley V-Rod's a bit bland? Then this is the bike for you

IT LOOKS like it should be starring on some Sci-Fi show, but now it's going on sale - and it'll cost you around £30,000. The V-Rex has been designed by Christian Travert, uses the motor from a Harley-Davidson V-Rod, is built in Fort Lauderdale, USA and looks like nothing else currently on the market.

The bike made its first public appearance last June and it was apparently the huge amount of public interest in the V-Rex that spurred the Travertson company onto putting the behemoth into production.
