Worth a watch
205 my good man, 205.......
I missed that, obvs.. (though you might have to explain the 205 ref to me..)
Reliant also produced all the production Ford RS200 Group B rally cars under contract to Ford. Ford only ever produced the prototypes and the works rally cars.
Thanks, my favorite bike
Gs 1200 with sidecar
are you sure? this looks like a tank!
A small tank
Not sure if the handling geometry on this would just be too confusing to dare get up to any speed..
I ride it with 120-130 km and it is ok.

Fresh new thinking in design really isn't that easy, I guess thats why so much stays the same decade in and decade out. Sports Bikes are by far the leaders in fresh design as high performance is always evolving and now Aero is the big thing and about time too.
Aero means greater down forces and increased slipperiness through the air, its free performance and decreases energy use! Although it comes at a very high price in development and in the use of mainly exotic materials.
I can't say this will go in to production, its one of about 10 drawings done in the last few day based on the actual limitations of the chassis design being used.
No this is not based on a "boat" but a concept that more mirrors a motorcycle riding experience, it has motorcycle seating and even has handlebars to put the passenger in a "riders stance" on a Sports Bike when the going gets very fast, the passenger won't get the rag doll flung around in a bath tub treatment but can brace comfortably under acceleration, cornering and braking.
Is it for everyone?...obviously not! But the MotoFoil Chassis is designed for quick change to a traditional type tub very easily if that is the desire. We will be track day testing the MotoFoil so I'm trying to come up with a great track riding experience for the more "Sporty" passenger who wants the "full experience" on a track or in the mountains.
That thing would slip through the air like Gabby Hays chuck wagon in a '50s western movie.

Reckon the Ralph Naders of this world would be unhappy with the potential slicing of errant pedestrians.
Sport bike ergos definately make it a lot easier to move about and get off the seat. It would be interesting with an active passenger, but I think a passive passenger would be better able to resist lateral forces in a conventional tub. It would also make more sense in a rigid configuration I think, it appears to be a leaner.
