Interesting, a bit of an odd beast. 17" front wheel, no spokes. $13K+ starting price. Kind of funny looking, like a stack of parts rather than a flow of lines. But I wouldn't kick it out of my garage.

Wouldn't kick out of my garage either, but I'd be glad to wheel it out of the garage to take a nice month-long ride in search of twisties. Ducs are my favorite moto eye candy, and this one just struck me. Not as gangly as the Multistrada. Still quite tall, but about the same weight as a V and twice the ponies! Not sure I could live with a Ducati, but who knows until you try, right?

It really looks like a Ducati Versys...what would you do to a Versys if you had twice the sticker price to work with? Something like this, I bet.

Looks insane, probably handles insane as well. It just don't like the all digital cockpit, the lack of passenger space, and I would not want to spend that much $$$ on a bike just yet.
