    This would be a GREAT around town/campsite scoot. I had one for about 6 months to intro my GF to bikes with clutches. It would top out (stock) at 45mph (GPS verified). Just fast enough to get run over where I live. Video of my bike I used to sell it on CL...

    I read a report that claimed the 125 Madass reached a top speed of 56 mph and that with some bolt-on goodies it could top 75 mph. That could be a FUN little urban assault scooter!

    There's even a forum devoted to them HERE.

    Good luck, even with a new sprocket it MIGHT make it to 55. I doubt it. The video I posted shows how hard this nearly new bike had to work to make 45.

    You might get to 75 with the motor swap.

    Looks like a Sanctuary, or similar high end resto-mod, on a classic Kaw Z.

    Muchos Dineros.

    Saw one of these at the dealer yesterday. Very cool in person. Wouldn't mind it today at all.

    Took a test ride on one of those a while back. Nice bike. Looks good. Did everything well. Got off of it bored senseless. Then again, I just don't enjoy riding anything powered by an inline four cylinder, sewing machine, no matter how well it works. :puke1 Other than that though, if that's your thing, I think it is a nice ride.

    Give that man a cigar! :clap Sanctuary racing it is.
    If I ever get done with my Z1 build (NOT documented anywhere........going to slow partly thanks to a broken wrist) it's going to look a LOT like this, only without the $4,000 hand-bent Ti exhaust system, FCR's, and sadly no Ohlins forks either. But it already has Ohlins shocks! It WILL be very sweet.

    Well crap! Strike what I said about sewing machines above! A redone, early Katana 1100 is one of my few exceptions to my general rule against inline 4s. As is something along the lines of the Sanctuary bike. Older classics, reworked with modern components to bring them up to date are very different from the cookie cutters sitting on a dealer's showroom today. Those bikes are unique enough in their own right to make up for the "lack of character" of the engine layout. :D
