Yeah... I'm not sure about motorcycles, but they sure do motor scooters.

I hope so. And Peugeot makes bikes? I've never seen one.

Between 165 to 190

A mate of mine puts turbos on Suzuki's and gets around 190hp with ??? torque. Superbikes are about 180hp, right?

@isaias why don't they fill the tank 100% ?! What's the problem with doing so ? I don't get it
Isaias Almanza Aug 02, 2012
You don't fill a tank on a bike to 100% full.
Joe Fats Harper Aug 01, 2012
90% full tank? Is that a common standard of measurement?
Paul Dickey Aug 01, 2012
Wow that's awesome.
Description: Even wet, that gives the HP4 a power-to-weight ratio of just 2.27 lbs/hp. That's nearly twice as potent as a Veyron. In other words, the Bugatti would need to have nearly 2,000 horsepower (or...

Yea this will kill the 1199 the s1000 is just a pure beast
Jack Howard Aug 02, 2012
Haha Harpreet nice try. This smokes the shit out of the 1199 but i love how the Ducatti uses a twin motor. the sound so nice. and in terms of looks, i like them both equally.
Harpreet Ahluwalia Aug 01, 2012
For that money I'd get an 1199 and smoke this, plus it looks 10 time better
Joe Fats Harper Aug 01, 2012
The S1000 RR is about 16k new.. 25 is really expensive for a bike
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 01, 2012
Launch Control!!!!!
Andrew McNeal Aug 01, 2012
$25 grand for something that will beat most cars costing ten times that.
Brad Wood Aug 01, 2012
Of only you do t have to add a 230lb rider (me) to mess with that power/weight ratio. Still a sick bike and I'd love to get one. One problem; big time limited production.
Justin ChalkChalk Smalyinator Aug 03, 2012
Im pretty focussed on Green too bruv
Justin ChalkChalk Smalyinator Aug 03, 2012
Has he got his feet on the passengers pegs? Elbows touching his knee.
Tony Flaherty Aug 01, 2012
Yea till they put a big ugly number plate on it.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 01, 2012
Nice tail section
David Purcell Aug 02, 2012
@carlton at least someone else knows a little about bikes to lol
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 02, 2012
To maintain grip while cornering as opposed to a cars tire which would resemble... Lets say a pancake meaning very flat.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 02, 2012
Actually Kenneth its more like centrifugal force. As a bike gains speed its tendency is to stay upright. Basically as you lean over you can feed the bike throttle and it wants to stand up. Also the contact patch on a motorcycle tire is egg shaped
Kenneth Williams Aug 02, 2012
I guess you've never seen motoGp or superbike races. All it is is using gravity to your advantage. When you're going certain speeds depending on how sharp the turn is you have to lean that far and at the same time provides more grip
Devin Stair Aug 02, 2012
Ones a running light and the other is a high beam
Colby Church Aug 02, 2012
Why does the bike have two different headlights?
Colby Church Aug 02, 2012
That's crazy how those tires stick so well even when they are tilted so far. It looks like the bike could just fall over any second from the uneven weight distribution. And that rider is crazy low.
William Downs Aug 01, 2012
yea just get new rear controlls
Keanu Casado Aug 01, 2012
I love those head lights
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 01, 2012
Riding position looks really cramped on this. Foot pegs are way up there
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 01, 2012
Nothin like draggin that knee
William Downs Aug 01, 2012

Jordan Jackson Aug 01, 2012
These guys are nuts, lol
Carlton Salmon Aug 02, 2012
Nice looking bike.
Jack Howard Aug 03, 2012
Apparently you hate motorcycles and dont like to go fast?
Will Peters Aug 02, 2012
Ill trade you this for some one of a kind pocket lint, a 2 head quarter and a matchbox
Lance Boudreaux Aug 01, 2012
I like the colors
Jordan Jackson Aug 01, 2012
Kinda resembles a shark from this angle
Tommy Lowry Aug 01, 2012
I like how it's not symmetrical
