    With great power comes great responsibility. In your case... it's making it home sans ambulance assistance....

    I cant see it being an actual sports bike. I envisage something a bit sleeker, a bit slimmed down in proportion. Ill bet it will have cantelever rear suspension, dual rear springs are disappearing fast. 2500cc and a blower was mentioned last time I spoke to them.
    Maybe a mating between an R3 and a Speed Triple.
    I just hope its as comfortable as my current R3.

    WELL thats the point no need to ride a sportbike as they are only fun if your racing and very uncomfy the ROCKET is comfy and fun to ride without racing and more satisfying and even faster than the sportbikes BUT more enjoyable for a full day of riding and you dont have to race to have fun
