AMG turbo-charged Motocycle from Aston Martin?


Wow! I wonder what Rastus would think of this turbo-charged bike?

Also I wonder what Mercedes Benz thinks about it considering the bike is named the AMG!? 

lol

It doesn't look too bad imo.

They can keep the turbo & just give me more cubes :) !

Looks like the instruments are all via an X or later iPhone model! 

Who knows if the thing is worth it's price tag, however I am willing to bet for most buying this bike thats about all they care about as it keeps the club exclusive. 

Maybe they will let a real rider test it out, perhaps against a Hyabusa? Then we can see if them extra cubes are worth more than a turbo.

It's all pose, that's for sure.

No doubt it will go well, & it certainly looks OK to me, but with the very limited rider protection, I'd say most 600cc+ Japanese bikes would have it for lunch over 90mph...Maybe be you could go a little faster on a nice calm day before the wind had its way with you.

Though certainly 20-years old now in original design, the Hayabusa has still got it even to this day. All those 1299cc's make for a nice spread of power at any rpm, in any gear.

In the "real world" of motorcycling, a Hayabusa would be a far better machine, hands down. But a Suzuki doesn't have street credo / name like Aston Martin either, though who would have ever thought of Aston Martin making a motorcycle ?...
