Insane. All the titanium costs a fortune. I watched a show on how they made titanium. It takes an entire month to refine the raw ore into finished product. Crazy.

I'd be scared to death to take it around the block.

Tell me about it. I could do all the upgrades that I wanted on my bike. Hard luggage, all new gear and money left over to take the wifey out to a real snazzy joint.

all that cash and excessiveness and they only used R&T forks?? no ohlins superbike forks? or 52mm marchozzi unobtainiums? kinda weird. and they're going to run into all kinds of issues with those titanium bolts into those aluminum bst hubs. there's a reason why most people don't use titanium besides the cost: they gall. they practically weld themselves to any dissimilar metal around them. plus they work harden (depending on the alloy) to the point of brittleness. course, at those prices for some of those parts, they're probably using the correct alloys to avoid those problems. but be warned, stay away from those cheaper Ti bolt kits on the web.
