Has anyone looked at the link I posted above yet? I'm surprised that there haven't been more comments on it, it's gotta be one of the coolest project bikes ever!

I've been looking at pics of that bike all summer. Amazing. I can't wait to read a test on that thing. I want to know weight and true RWHP.

For the price diff id save 30k and just put 15k into a gsxr 1000 and have it smoke that duke.

Looks like an older r6 kinda?


none the less

Yeah, but the GSXR won't be under warranty still.

I'd take a Duc over a gixxer any day of the week...even on Sunday. More class.

I'm pretty sure the Duc's front end is upwards of 8-10K.

Yeah. About what a Gix 1k would cost you.

And if you want to dump 15K to make it as good as the Duc, 1/2 that would just be the front end. It wouldn't happen with 15K. you're not going to get 200+ HP out of a GSXR for 15K. If you do, you wouldn't have $ to pimp the front end and brakes to handle all that power.
