I just don't understand the idea of a 1000cc 400lb motard bike. If you're gonna go that route, then get a liter bike. My .02, that's all.

It's cool, don't get me wrong. I just don't get it.

My Italian's a bit rusty, but I didn't note a weight. Given that this is only 750 cc, this may be some insight to a 848 rival???
C'mon Ape, give us some love.

Now that looks swwwweeeeeeeet! It looks like it may not be much heavier than the 5.5, or is it 5.2? Any way it looks from the pics that is might not be all that heavy. If not that thing could be one heck of a lot of fun. Probably not for competition but man on the street and track what a blast.

Ooohhh yeah that's getting pretty heavy. That's just getting way to close to the weight of a sport bike.

You know I just don't understand why they couldn't make it just a little bit lighter. Even if maybe they made it a 700cc. My 650 only weighs about 280 and it could definitely easily be made a 700 if it had two cylinders. Just doesn't seem like it has to be that much heavier.

I noticed after I commented on the weight that it has two front rotors and that gave me a clue that it must be pretty heavy.

he is an old guy with a bad hip... so cut him sum slack. he gets ur point, its just that he cant crunch up on a sportbike anymore or at least until he gets a hip replacement. so for the time being... the KTM 950 supermoto is the only motard that puts out 100hp at the rear wheel stock. yes, its heavy & big but he's not out there trying to set the world on fire either. he's just trying to still get is ride on ! u dig

I wasn't intentionally rippin on him, just curious. I understand the nature of the riding posture, the setup of the bike, and ease of the power delivery from these types of bikes. I just see it better suited to smaller displacement and lighter chassis (how do you pluralize???). Gimme a CRF450 or SMX4.5 or the like, and I'd be super happy.
