Meh. Turn the volume down and lose the dramatic back beat and there's not much there.

The prototype was allegedly powered by a modified GL 1800 engine, though how they got the weight up to 510 kg is beyond me.

A bike that heavy is a challenging idea to me, and probably most other motorcyclists, but apparently it can work well in the real world.

A Boss Hoss Standard 2 wheeler with a V8 is about the same weight. I've read several reviews from mainstream sources saying their ride quality is unexpectedly good, on par with a full size touring bike, better than some big cruisers.

Thats surprising heavy and it doesn't even have a tour pack. Maybe it will have modern electronic gadgets and stereo to make up for it :o

Cheaper than a box of Legos.

But not in North America.
I fount the solo version interesting, and contacted CM Moto. They responded and said they have no plans to import any street legal Motorcycles. Kinda odd since they have a decent ATV/UTV dealer network here, but I guess they know what they're doing.
