The coolest thing about that bike is the way it sounds! Imagine hearing that when one of those blows by you on the freeway. Very cool! :thumbsup::awww:

Bummer, you should have bought it. But if you have no self control, then I understand. :lol:

Let's see, the turbine sportbike has a power to weight ratio of 1.73 and the new '04 R1 has a ration of 2.3. Not bad for a motorcycle that costs less than $10k.

I would not be buying an R1 and putt-putting to the shops and back for milk... :lol: I have ridden one, and as much as I liked it, I knew that I should not have one in my shed... :awww: a modded WR and a modded V8 car is enough adrenaline for me... an R1, or R6, for that matter would just be too much temptation, unless I was on a track with it... but I have no road racing tracks close enough... :lol: and too many idiots on the roads... :thumbsup:

if u r keen on the R1 check out the on board vid from a turbo r1 at www.fuelmedia.se Judging by the way it lifts the front wheel on the throttle from way over 100mph i'd say it's got 300+ HP.
