I hear that! Looks like they have 4 variations to choose from.

That does look great, should be lowered though.

I wish someone made a modern 1946 Harley. This is the bike I want.

I'd still rather have the KTM 690 Duke. About the same HP(70) and TQ(48)...but 40 pounds lighter.

I think the KTM is a 2 stroke and 70hp out of a 4 stroke is so much more usuable. I love it.

It needs some drag bars, street tires, a less dorkish swing arm, and finally a less gay exhaust. Frankly it looks like a Frankenstein bike assembled from mid '00 Japanese parts trying to be clever. Never been a fan of Ducati.

Shaun, do you suppose you could make one of those out of a Sportster? Only way you get something like that is you make it yourself or pay someone to do it for you.

That minimalist retro thing is pretty boss, but I bet that front suspension is not that great. I had a buddy with a bicycle that had a front fork like that. Funky steering. preferred no suspension to that.

Looks hipster.

Shaun, come out with a line of Kevlar skinny jeans, you'll make a mint!

It's not hipster, it has a front fender.

The KTM Duke is very much a 4 stroke.

I'm working on a women's couture line based on composites and a variety of different durometer epoxies, so I'll look into it.

I have no idea and have way too many projects as it is, but I love the look of the bike. I would buy a modern version in a heartbeat. Best I could do is take a CB400 and start cutting and welding.

If I wasn't so fearful of being killed or maimed by careless drivers on "auto pilot", I might actually one day learn to ride! Perhaps it can be my "REAL" mid-life crisis?!

Wow.

That's two exciting recent announcements, the other being the BMW R1200RS.
