Actiually.. looking at the pieces and parts... it;s a nicely thought out design... it has the vertically mounted battery like the SB5 so you can get some serious lean out of it... it's got a foam rider for lightweight durability.... it's got a lay-dow rear shock... GP swingarm... roller scratch bars... the frame is nice... the front and rear fenders are sweet... the only things I don't like are the gyro, the fairing (which is goofy looking and hard plastic), and the "front air shocks"..... but the "pro" version will probably take care of these things (except for the fairing.. and I'm not sure about the front shocks)

I've got the bikes and all parts on order. If the estimated dates are true, things should start rolling in in less than a month.

What do I know?, it still looks like a toy to me. I don't think it could hang with the likes of the NF bikes or an SB or any of the race proven bikes out.

Yeah, something about it does look toy like, maybe it's all the plastic. But I actually think it looks very good. Lets hope the price is competitive and that it can be made into a capable racer. The more bike choices we have the better.
