A $275K motorcycle - what you REALLY want for Christmas

The Ecosse Moto Works' Robb Report Limited Edition Titanium Series Motorcycle and Timepiece.

“And with well over 200
horsepower and 210 ft lbs of torque, a number
of engineering hurdles had to be overcome.” To
achieve peak performance, the 2,150 cc engine,
carved from a solid block of aluminum, is fuel injected,
supercharged, and intercooled."

Yep, $275 large. How limited? - there's only ten. Regular cheesey base model Ecosse's START at $44,000.

But hey, it comes with a free watch!

Kinda homely lookin' innit? That engine looks like a diesel powered deli meat slicer.

At least it's not a chopper/cruiser

Air cooled? Well, considering the price, I would like to see a little more engineering. The rear cylinder is directly behind the front cylinder. On an air coled set up, you know what that means!

Well, yes! Loud pipes are part of the "super hot rear cylinder" package. Knocking, pinging, and leg burns, during the Summer, are also included. It should be noted that asbestos pants are OPTIONAL, however!
