Looks like a lot of thought went into that, glad to see he got from under the thumb of H.D. and was able to produce something more along the lines of what HE envisioned, instead of something H.D. would approve of.

Can't wait to see something more street oriented, with a nicer price tag.

true let's say 10k for the complete set of cf fairings, at 30K still not very realistic considering you can find very low mileage Desmos for around 45k now.

What I don't understand is this: how is he going to race it in superbikes? The article specifically says that he's only going to build 100 units AND THEN think about making a streetable version.

Now I'm all for a competitive, american made, superbike.....................but does it seem like DMG is bending the "must be based on 500 road bikes" rule to give Buell an unfair advantage - again?
