horizontally opposed, quad cam, needle bearing, aircooled engine:

the video's good, but nothing compares to sitting in or following behind one. the motor doesn't skip a beat, and revs nightmarishly high, literally music.

you hear the rpm's climbing and by sound you think you've tapped out, but it just keeps on producing power.

a beautiful thing
