Yup. And the upcoming Corvette Z-06 is going to have over 625hp, but until someone actually can TOUCH one, I'm a little skeptical. lol

I think they look neat, will be shocked if they ever materialize out of the vapor, even more if they have a magical v-twin that outperforms Ducati's top of the line engine.

Re: Lotus Motorcycle

It is designed and built by Kodewa, a German racing company. Good it has chain drive, not a German shaft drive unit!
