    Sure there was another thread, but can't find it.

    Anyways...

    Thats one fucking cool momocycle.

    2.5l

    Three cylinders

    180bhp

    166 ft-lb torque!!!!!!!!

    290kg!!!!!



    If my numbers came up, I'd have one in a heart beat, just for the fuck you factor.

    The old one was hilarious, these might be even better. I may have to get a test ride soon!

    It looks ok but not amazing imo. I prefer the Diavel fwiw.

    Oh yeah, it's obviously aimed quite squarely at the Diavel, shares some styling features imho.

    But three pots are better than two... and the Diavel only (ONLY) makes 93ft-lb of torque.

    It makes more than double the torque of your GSXR

    I reckon it would be fucking hilarious to ride.

    I think that looks pretty lush. I had a test ride on a roadster a few years ago. It wasn't quite as hilarious as I'd imagined it might be. It was very useable, and very well mannered. But this version looks like it may be quite a hoot. I'd have one, but not as my main bike. I do a lot of urban miles, and i like to hussle through traffic. A R3 isn't really ideal for that. Having said that, I did it with the Griso for long enough!

    Definitely looks imposing but as mentioned above the Diavel is more appealing to my eyes. Sounds like a laugh of a bike and I hope it exceeds expectations.

    Has Couchie owned one these yet?
