Are you seeing the same picture as me ?
The bar/peg / seat relationship looks odd, the bars look too high and raked up and back to be comfy.
If you squint, it looks like a silverback gorilla! And probably as scary to get your leg over!

I worked on the motors for this project, the fact you probably never saw one tells you all you need to know. Too big, poor quality internals, and crank halves that werent matched , amongst other things. All Aluminium though, looked great viper1.jpg

I wonder if they've dispensed with the throttle and just fitted a volume control like they do with Harleys ? :whistle:

Possibly. Not sure if they still offer a plough attachment either :) . To be fair large singles (and V twins) are incredibly difficult to silence effectively without reducing performance. And that particular engine can ill-afford to lose much of that.

Its all about power delivery though Our ZX10R had just shy of 190 brake at the wheel (10" tyre sapping power on the dyno) it was not slow!
The little 675 Triumph 106 & does every thing great.
15 year old Buell only 100 BHP & yet the delivery on the Buell just makes you grin from ear to ear plus the sound 🤪
