Wow! 145 horsepower from 2.1L  That sure beats my 2008 Hyundai Elantra- only 138 HP , mind you it's a little smaller at 2.0L.   :evil:
And yup, to my eye everything but the engine is, er , aesthetically challenged.

But here's hoping that Combat will release a Wombat model  or a Tomcat or more appropriately for the target demographic, a Fatcat.

I am a Confederate owner. I stopped dead in my tracks when i saw one for the first time, had to have one. I would not even look twice at their bikes now. Matt Chambers and his design team must be fans of the Tron movies.  My bike is a2001 Hellcat fast and great handling machine.

That would be the Vulcan Meanstreak I owned for 7 years.  Sportbike wheels and tires,  USD forks.  Two disks with sport bike calipers up front.  Mine was an '07 purchased for $6300 OTD in '09.

Itís a Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jay Leno toss fest type thing.
Whoís innocent of that crime ? I donít see it as any uglier than some of the ďcustomĒ pus, foisted on a clamouring audience made up of Guzzi fringe dwellers.
To be honest, it looks like you could actually ride the bastard somewhere....

Take a real good look......Go for a long 700-800 mile day on that?!?  (I think not...) :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :shocked: :shocked: :huh:  Also, a ridiculous "silly" price (IMHO) @ $155,000... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :shocked: :shocked: :huh: :huh:




They wouldnít sell unless the price WAS silly.
Back in a previous life, I used to make good money part time in venues involving a stage and a mic.
The owner of the equipment told me to double my price and I would get more work, so I did and I did. If you gouge people who are forming an opinion in their minds as to how good you are, they will think youíre worth having if youíre expensive.
This thing is the same, itís never been about the bike, itís a symbol of your status... If a Desmosedici Ducati was 20,000 Australian dollars, it would not be as desirable to the Casey Stoner wannabes.
