The Yamaha's fairing is starting to look like the Ducati. I'm surprised this didn't happen earlier.

The Suzuki's are hard to see. I wonder if Hopper gets to even lay a finger print on one of the 08's [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

It's amazing how much narrower the bikes look. I wonder if anyone will take a gamble on the longitudenly mounted I-4.

I'm guessing it won't happen. They'll probably keep overlapping cylinders until it's a W config. Still, it's interesting to think how much narrower these bikes are going to get.

Something to do woth gyroscopic forces, the longitidenally arranged engines on bike are difficult to control


I am surprised none of the bike's engines were switched to screamers.

Does anyone know if VW have a patent on their VR6 engine technology, i'd be interested to know if a VR4 would be any good in a gp bike.
