Spy shots (very interesting)

http://news.windingroad.com/auto-new...tm-you-decide/


I found this on killboy.com today. I thought everyone could speculate as to what they think. I don't have a clue.

I'm going with Can-Am street snowmobile myself. Makes the most sense.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

That big belt drive on the left side certainly could be Polaris or Victory, I doubt it is H-D - no way is it BMW.

Yep...Little European lassie had to put on weights to emulate the heftier American women.

I can't believe that it's American. Sure does look VW-ish up front. But I'll go with Peugeot as my final answer.

I wonder if it has any storage capacity at all.

The front end looks very much like a VW from the side. Too bad there are no shots from the front.

It could be that VW trike that was supposed to be killed, and is now coming back, just more in a MC version than the previous pics.

I have no idea, but surely there must be some part that -- when zoomed in at 40,000% -- reveals itself to be a certain brand. So many guys (Mr. Shealey?) can identify a product by the type of wing nut fastened to the vertical framistabilizer. This mystery shouldn't take too long.

And it is a neat vehicle.

Looks like the test riders are guys. They had to add weight to the passenger to simulate the weight of some of the gals I've seen ridding on the back of the GWs

Well, since everyone is guessing......the wheels look very beemerish and note the side covers, extended out from the rest of the body, where cylinder heads could be sticking out. Dick
