the SB8R is powered by Suzuki's V-twin (based on the Suzuki streetbike -- the TL1000R).

I have access to an SB8...new...0 miles. And I know of an SB8R....0 miles, both still on the MSO. Drop me a pm and I can get you prices. I think the SB8 is $16K, and the SB8R (all carbon fiber bodywork plus upgraded forks and shock) will run about $18K delivered.
