2019 model. 243 hp. That's enough hp to get you into trouble really fast.
I am not sure where sexy comes from unless you just want to look at it in your driveway. To actually get on and punish it takes a lot of work. Several Gs can be had at any moment. My son wants me to help him turbo charge a GXSR. Not sure why since they get along just fine straight out of the showroom. For me drag strips and closed circuit tracks are the way to go. I guess my age has something to do with it. Thanks
The first time I rode my 1100 Yamaha, I grabbed a hard 2nd gear & it took the bars right out of my hands. I can't imagine 243 horsepower.
I'm thinking population control device is what 243hp on two wheels results in. Great looking bike.
I’m old school, these are what a great looking machine means to me.
Beauty is and always has been, in the eye of the beholder.
Italians are well known for bright red and flowing lines. Be it a car or a m/c. I'm too old and too big to mount that Ducati. Ideally, the rider would be about 5-07 and 150 lbs. tops.
Oh yeah, and be young. Young enough to still have a very flexible spine.
Guess sex is different for everyone, you couldn't melt and pour that no seat thing on me, now those grizz posted i'd take in a heartbeat.
If I ever hit the lotto, one of those Black lightning machines will be in my garage!!
Can I have my Triumph back when you do?
Motorcycles have always been an adrenaline thing for me. Not just a mode of transportation. I've never owned a sedate m/c, except for the two Yamaha BW-200's dirt bikes that we own.
If I wanted to just mosey on down the highway, I'd own a Harley. For me, it has to be similar to getting into a fighter jet, when I get ready to go for a ride. My current BMW is more an of A-10 than an F-35. But.....it still produces enough adrenaline in me to get the job done.
Bless yer heart, Officer.
seen few vincents on the road & in shows, never seen a crocker, other than pics.
like the duc, too, tho my pick would be...
Many years ago, I had a friend who had one of those. He was the slowest of the bunch...........
ya 441 victors were quicker, but they dont have that head n cam drive.
Saw a Crocker at a museum in Solvang, Calif. That machine was THE best one there, and he had some doozies! I’ll see if I can find the pics in my files, I made a special trip by the museum on a trip up from my in-laws place in San Clemente, about 2 1/2 hrs outa our way, but worth every minute!
Museum at Solvang, Calif.
What's up with the con rod lying on the seat?
