Great concept and technology. Whom ever did the styling needs a swift kick to the head. Its very... Rohr in its uncreativeness.

That $.02 was not for you. It was for someone else.

didn't mean that so no worry's mate

don't like the styling really that much myself, most bikes before the turn of this century were better looking, but thats personal preference, or i'm getting old

I think it looks great bar the nose fairing.
Tail lights and passenger pegs look like KTM jobs.
I hope it gets 2WD soon and it will be one hell of a go everywhere bike.

New Beast no longer in prototype stage.... First ones are now Delivered

Well it's got some work to do to make it a true ADV. Beast and not just a look like beast (no skid plate yet) buttttt.. it is now available from TRACK out of Holland. Mechanically the engine is a beast that is for sure. More on that discussed below.

The big news is... its no longer just talk and prototypes... Its sister bike.. more of a Roadie version of the one pictured below is out and new owners have taken the first wave of deliveries.

800cc
Shaft drive,
CVT Auto Tranny
2wd is in the works. It has actually be developed.. just not being sold yet.





Bike pictured is T-800CDI Explorer 1E

Yes... CDI... engine's are manufactured by MERCEDES. Same engine that is in the diesel Smart Car. 3cyl turbo diesel



if it passed a shake down test this bike could win the Dakar cause NO FUEL STOPS... at 100mpg. May be too heavy though... and the 450 restriction.. oh well... guess not.

TRACK MOTORCYCLES

And people complain about an average bike's service procedures...just wait until they have to suck the oil out through the dipstick to change it on that thing!

Ugly, and it sounds like crap, not alot of HP, no skidplate, and, who wants a bike with no shifting?

Then again, 100 mpg? 6 gallon tank? YOWZA!

Have seen the bike at the Utrecht Int. Motorcycle Exhibition last weekend and believe me, the bike is designed and build to last for ever. The designer - Mr. de Vegt - has made no concessions towards the materials he used. Look at the bike for real, than judge about it.

A friend of me had a test ride on it and his experiences are in the line of the test reports in several motorcycle magazines: the bike handles like a dream, and the lack of power (in pure Bhp) is more than enough compensated by the huge amount of torque.

And about Diesel... OK, I know that in the States Diesel isn't very much popular... But hey, no substitute for cubic inches they say (...)... Always funny to notice that VS manufactures only can get a few Bhp from a 4.0 where EU and Japanese getting lots more from halve the size...

Diesel is one of the most reliable internal combustion engines you can buy these days. And I think it is brave for a designer that he has found a way to put a well-proven unit (with Mercedes genes) in a motorcycle chassis!

No skid plate... What the heck, you can easily add one aftermarket.

No gears... Got a point there. I think 'shifting' around is one of the things which belongs to the emotions of riding a motorcycle in first place...

The only thing which is very worrying... The first EVA Tracks should have been delivered to the customers 12 months ago, after the Utrecht show 2009. But they didn't come despite the promises made by the manufacturer.

My friend was that much impressed after the test spin that he ordered one. But he cancelled the order (using the bike for business) after 5 months of waiting and went for a BMW R1200GS...

At this years show Track showed the Xplorer version, with fog lights, alu Hebco&Becker panniers, crashbars, etc the full Mounty. But I'm afraid it's only again a teaser.

Maintenance is something you should have a look at. The bike would be available in the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg) in first place, with no dealer network. Service would be given on your front lane, just call and the service-bus driving in. OK, the service interval is a lot wider as on most bikes, but look at the costs... I live a 4 hrs drive from the factory, so a mechanic would only use 8 hrs to get at my doorstep and back!

That can't be taken seriously. But maybe they will change...

I've got my current Honda dealer at 2 minutes from our house and 3 more within a 50 KM radius. When spending over € 17.000,- (incl hideous Dutch Taxes) for a bike, I want to deal with a real person, with service directly available. And not be putting on a waiting list because 'Service isn't available right now'...

Maybe I am a little spoiled?

100 mpg I like. which is why Im building a Diesel Tiger.

HP..... as I understand it. Diesels engines due to their power curve (more torque) characteristically need less horse power to get the same net speed results as a petrol engine.
