I don't know why, but the sound of that bike always reminded me of the late 70's and early 80's v-10/ 12 F1 cars...

Very cool. I wonder what the new 'Priller V4 sounds like?

Its hard to tell sarcasim or not in writing but a few things might play into it; pnematic valves, similar bore/stroke dims, and a famous F1 engine builder of the era Cosworth. Funny that the 80s were the turbo years of F1 but your right, the thing does sound like one. I guess so long as the revs are on par... After that time period revs started taking off in F1 and are now beyond recongition of anything manmade.

I think that with improvements in elecronics today the Cube could be done much better now, just bad timing for a not so bad idea.

Here's an exerpt:

"The second reason for choosing the three is we wanted to use the benefits of Formula 1 technology in developing an anything-goes high-tech power unit, and a 990cc triple has a 330cc cylinder capacity, which is very close to the dimensions of a 10-cylinder 3.5-liter F1 car. This way, I could use a lot of technology and parts from Formula 1, which would save [some development] time.

Agreed, I always understood the problem to be the power delivery and not the amount of power available.
