    K&N has a formula for square inches of filter per horsepower. How much hp does that car valve cover breather filter support on the K-bike?

    Curtis/Confederate strikes again!
    Yes, this is only a computer rendering but they are seeking crowd funding to put it into production for "only" $30,000...
    Step right up and put your money in their hands:

    @Wildebeest90210 posted this in the cafe' racer thread but I think it belongs here.
    It certainly is NOT a cafe' racer...

    I think I built a Tinker Toy bike when I was about 4 that looked like that thing

    I actually felt bad for the materials used to ruin these poor motos.

    Each to there own, but why is it all they do is cut down the seat, remove the rear guard and then worst of all remove the airbox attach air pods leaving this massive void that looks f#### stupid.
    Like I said each to there own.
    Oh, and rename the bike as a custom design bike and increase the $$$

    It looks to me like you can't be a custom bike builder unless you wear a black t-shirt.

    My vote is any and every sport bike with a stretched swingarm. They are everywhere around here.

    This one isn't 'orrible, but :scratch

    [​IMG]

    Why build a humongous bathtub rear thing that doesn't even work as a fender (mudguard)?
    All aluminum and nicely shaped, but stupid! :fpalm

    It is really just side covers because it won't do anything to protect the rider from water, mud, slop, and people pointing and saying "Hey, your fender fell off!"

    But it is an easy fix!

    I actually wanted to like this, but I couldn't.
    Handlebar to seat to foot peg is absolutely stupid.
    The designer could have moved the seat up and forward, allowing the foot pegs to be somewhere close to be under your ass, where they belong, and still have maintained the beautiful lines.
    And why in dogs name is the rear brake not operated by the left hand, since there is room due to the missing clutch lever ?
    Not to mention the cheap looking foot pegs themselves.
    But I wonder if you can get the 'wooden' panels book matched ?

    At least they didn't waste anything but pixels in actually building it. Never mind, their website is less than useless: https://www.newronmotors.com/

    To me that's a nicely modified 600 Hornet. Wouldn't be at all embarrassed to be seen riding that bike.
