    More great news!

    The actual success of Motorrad is undoubtedly driving the ‘perceived’ success of the brand, wich in turn – and eventually, will be manifesting in more car sales.
    That, of coarse, is just my theory. But, never the less, a big reason why we should all be taking note of this story and the rise of Motorrad. It’s all connected.

    Congrats to Motorrad!

They just need rossi to ride it in wsbk in 3 years time. i wonder if there hp version built in limited numbers. or are hp’s just for the 1200 boxers. I can also see a 3 cylinder s750rr
