I thought BMW has had prototypes like this for years.
Not sure why they would need the turbo version to hit top speeds, we already machine like the Hayabusa and ZX14 that have more power than my car, don't think they need a turbo version if they look around. Plus they can streamline it way better than a bike so drag should be much reduced.
It would be neat to have, but not 50,000 pounds neat. I would go $5000, but not more.
That contraption would be fun as hell until you lowsided or highsided it. Those damn outriggers won't do you any good if you happen to spin up the rear tire or grab a little too much brake while leaned over.
Even in a low speed drop, you're going to have broken plastic up the wazoo and how in the world would you ever pick it back up?
it is very old, I remember watching that same thing on "beyond 2000" about 15 years ago. if you low side the outrigger wheel will contact the ground before the plastics do, I don't know about highside, it might just roll over and smash your head in. I also remember that below a certain speed the outrigger wheels will automatically deploy.
There was a grey one that did the Battletrax gig a few years back...two consecutive years if memory serves me right. He didn't win any medals, but made it through the course without hitting any cones...
Dude said there was an AC option...
Heck, Ft bstrd, you could arrive at work not only presentable, but cool as a cucumber!!!
