This is a work of art with typical germanic engineering. Turbo Diesels rock in Europe and outperform most gas engines of the same size. If you ever get a chance to test drive a VW Turbo Diesel, do it, you will be surprised! Decent performance plus 50+ mpg.

The key here is not 100hp but 144 ft lbs torque!

I like the 150 Metz up front. I wonder how that would work on the 109????? :bigthumbsup:

I still think we got the most bang for our buck by picking the M, and right from stock the M is still a very eye pleasing machine, and for me all that power is just an added bonus.

I'll be the first to say it... Diesel trucks are hard enough to work on... but a bike?

I cant imagine what the exhaust would sound like.... and if you did a burn out, would it dump black smoke all over the car behind you? That would be cool if someone got to close behind you.

they write it up like it's a ferrari or something, and say the price isn't available until it ships. there's something different (turbo-diesel), but nothing great about this bike. i'd love to see their high price tag so i can laugh.

saw one reviewed in an ozzie mag, two wheels I think, a month or two ago. Tester said it was a great handling bike with torque, but very slow throttle response. You'd get that I suppose from a oilburner. Oh yea, he also said it was the worst sounding bike he had EVER heard. Woud've prefered the thing to be dead silent than hear the horrible exhaust.
