Maybe production models will have them...

The more I read about this motorcycle, the better it sounds. Read this article from Motorcyclist Mag. 160 hp, 550 lbs, "closely related to the Chevrolet LS7.R small-block V8 that powers Pratt & Miller’s racecars, sharing the same basic two-valve, pushrod architecture." Now if I could just win that lottery! Price is to be 20-30K range.

Thanks for posting those...

...I was sure dissapointed in the promo videos... I think most of us could find better places to test those awesome bikes.
