The American Sportbike Stereotype
the various manufacturers of sportbikes in the US, Cyctz and allo the rest seem to feel that chasis components, swingarm length and width, handlebar/clipon styles and any other aspect, weight, rims nad anyting else is all fair game to build any method they chose....So if they are open to any type of design why must the "American Sportbike" be a big CI Twin?
Why is it that a maker cant put out a "American Sportbike" with a Big (or small) 4 cylinder... or hell even a triple. I'd tend to htink they should only sell it with a big cc motor since the american muscle car was build on big displacement....Just to keep the american style... they can sell it only as advanced bikes and have beginners start on a 600 GSXR/ZX/CBR/R bike then step up to a 360lb 1050cc V4 that pumps a mind blowing 180RWHP, with good suspension. Many of the existing bikes are GREAT in EVERY aspect of the bike except the motor. What prevents one smart american from building a bike?
