Lotus didn't make it they just put their stamp on it. Think English Harley. If you want a bike with a really uncomfortable riding position just get a ZX-10R, much faster and much cheaper.

For some reason the bike visually reminds me of a H-D XLCR Cafe Racer of the late 1970's.

I've seen this posted on a couple websites now. I don't get the excitement. 100 Bikes? Big deal. Most of them will never even be ridden, most will be parked in Jay Leno's, Justin Beiber's and Saudi prince's showrooms. The actual impact on the real world of motorcycling will be ZERO. To me the only thing amazing about this thing is that Lotus has managed to be less relevant in the motorcycle world than they are in the automobile world.

Don't forget the Dodge Tomahawk, or the Y2K, haha.
