It looks cool thats for sure. I dont know that much about V-Twin engines so the way I gauge other V-Twins is I see how much light comes through the engine when looking at it sideways. Its probably a dumb way to compare because the body around it can be wider and allow more space, but I havent seen any that completely block the light like the 9 does. I like the way our bikes look.
This bike is coming to Auburn Alabama. The governor was here yesterday to confirm the location with the company. May be able to get a better deal on one since they will be made here in Auburn. Still like my 9 better!
Viper Motorcycle Co. plans to move from Hopkins to Auburn, Ala., this year.
The company, which began limited production of motorcycles in 2009, said it expects to begin manufacturing in Auburn in 2011.
Viper will occupy a new 63,000-square-foot facility that it will lease from the city, according to Phillip Dunlap, Auburn economic development director. The city also is providing the company with a $500,000 financial package that includes loans and grants for training workers, Dunlap said. The company has 10 employees but expects its workforce to grow to about 100 in the next two years.
Viper Motorcycle is a subsidiary of Viper Powersports Inc., whose operations also will move to Auburn, according to Andrew Broadley, technical director. In its most recent financial report, the company posted revenue of $128,979 and an operating loss of about $1.1 million for the first quarter ended March 31.
