        Claimed to weigh only 160kg, and can be plugged into a PC where telemetric data can be downloaded and engine mapping uploaded from the net.

        Cute. (ugly but interesting)
        I do not mean to pry, but you don't, by any chance, happen to have six fingers on your right hand?

              Nah the front disc is crossdrilled you can see it if you look carefully. Rumor was circulating that Aprilia were developing a V4 for an attempt at the MotoGP in the not too distant future.

              The the front suspention looks like a system called hub-center steering.

              Too much want.
              I love two strokes. Because they annoy the shit out of people. ^_^

                    Hotness. Nice find Mr Fridge.
                    That tail looks an awful lot like KTM's new sportsbike (RC8 or something?).

                    It looks (as someone already mentioned) like BMW's telelever front end. Could be the next step in front-end design

                      Front Susp looks like the Duolever system that's on my BMW, should go hard & handle well. Would luv to take 1 for a blast.

                            ^ Haha I love the logic of the design.

                            Engineers: "Ferk a frame, we don't need that shit... its just extra weight. Lets just strap everything to the engine block. Woo!"

                            Less = more FTW!

                              looks like it has a pretty long wheel base, might not be the best for cornering
