as much as i prefer the look of the lambo...its screams " bike". nobody gonna know what it is at first.

the space potato says otherwise. while i love the lambo design (bike wise) i would pick the space potato. it LOOKS different. it will have EVERYONE turning heads and asking questions. not just the typical bike crowd. again i prefer the lambo bike look. but for attention i would get the ferrari fo sho!

besides, it reminds me of Yamagatas bike off of akira. long and close to the ground. kanedas bike is overplayed.

The so-called-Ferrari would not be a very fun ride.

Front looks as it has almost no suspension travel.

The wheelbase looks long as ....

its a phalic missle... what do you expect? its only for thrusting forward at high rates of speed:P

this is the kind of bike you could see chaps wearing leather helmets, and goggles, with a scarf. reminds me of the WWI aircraft days. i think its an original step forward to something different

When the new v12 convertable came out they did a beginning to end for the enveil of the new production car on tv. You got to see everything from laying the carbonfiber to seat work, engine builds etc.

Besides, casting was a 90's invention. The new stuff is waterformed, hollow and very light. The new M3's cams were formed that way but it was too pricey to use on any other engine BMW makes.



Looks aside(and practicality) the 7k engine drops for ferrari maintenance and valve adjustments leads me to believe the pepped everything they can out of those engines and left little for longevity. The F50 is classic race, I agree but simply put only 15% of the cars made have been in for their first oil change/valve adjustment. That's a $18k job.(Numbers from C&D 1998---if I recall from my video diary.)

The only Ferraris I've been in(nothing more then pulling in/out of a shop) have been very nice but also simple. Lamborghini the same; although Im a fan of the Lambo I can't get over the Diablo shifter/gate being in the way and the offset shift pattern(although a good idea, unpracticticle these days w purpose-built offset gearing/computer controlled clutches.)

As a manufacturer of sports cars, Ferruccio Lamborghini was unique in his racing policy. Lamborghini clearly stated that his company would not participate in or support motor racing. they only build over priced cars to compete with ferrari. FCK lamborghini. everything about that company is ugly. right down to thier cars. flat and no passion. they all look the same. they're styling leaves alot to be desired. have any of you that say lambo ftw ever actually been in one let alone driven one? very few of us have. ferrari is a precision machine which requires high paid techs to touch them. everyone wants to be ferrari even mclaren mercedes. google silver ferrari scandal. if you guys ever wanna talk ferraris lmk. ill let you know whats really up.

Lambo didn't even use the ohlins superbike forks.....just ohlins r&t's...wtf? The Ferrari would be cool at the drag strip, but that's about it.

I want to ride one of these. Two swingarms:

Bimota Tesi 3D 2007 02 1024x768

The Ferrari appears to be a vintage early 1980s design as seen here

Lambo looks like the other sport bikes with a slightly shaper edges.
Maybe you could call it a stealth design for marketing.
The Ferrari looks like it is made of soap and has been in the shower.

Would have to go with the Lambo on looks.

The ONLY Ferrari I've driven that was anywhere near impressive was the f60...all the others disappoint..

Old lambos handle like , Audi took over and that helped them substantially in that dept. Burnboy is right, like it or not lambos are just expensive audis now...

If I HAD to choose, I'd take a Ferrari, and trade it in for a zr1 and 2 z06's
