Vincent Prototype

this isnt new... maybe two years old, but just saw the pic again...
i love the CF body and tank.. i bet with a modern suspension its the fastest crusier/standard on the road. Gotta be light as most sportbikes

Its a good looking bike besides the exhaust and rear fender. Besides that, it would look like a modern day Norton.

Cruisers their traditional look that they stick to. I like that these bikes have a traditional look that I actually like. Ducatis classic series, the Triumph Thruxton, New Norton, and this vincent make on of my favorite niches- the modern Uber cafe racer.

To me, it looks like the Kawi and Yammys from the early/middle 70's...Back when the first monoshockers appeared...

That rear cowl gives it the Cafe look from the racing bikes of the 70's...

Would that be a cruiser? look at the pegs. They're pushed back like a sport tourer or something. But what do I know.

the body is IDENTICAL(minus it being carbon fiber instead of steel) as the Vincent bike of the 1920's

its much older design then the 70s... the engine is decently powerful and exhsut isnt really that updated either besides being chromed now and slighlty larger... Id damn sure sport it. With the tires and peg position it has you could beat a 1st month rider on a 600SS bike... it looks like it would beat almost any cruiser on the street, and all the dual sports also.

I would take the rear fender off, and I think it looks like a carbon fiber Triumph... that thing is sweet, I would definitely ride that bad boy!

I'd ride it. doesnt look too bad, just needs a little color other than just carbon fiber and i'd love it. that back fender has to go too.
