Y'all seen this? Old news?

This thing is crazy. Funny that the video never shows him turning, just going straight down the road. Still pretty cool. https://twistedsifter.com/2018/07/tm...tarso-marques/

Holy [email protected], that rear wheel is missing his butt by about an inch! (imagine if you inadvertently slid back just an inch and your clothing gets sucked down between the seat and wheel...) Yikes!

Looks to me as though it has zero steering, other than by just leaning. And really, what is the point of this thing having 300 HP? Wouldn't 50 HP provide more power than you need? Or would someone actually want to go 0-100 on this contraption in just 2 seconds? Not me.

Its a concept bike - they show him riding down the street at 25 mph. They dont show him turning around and going back the other way

Cant tell how the engine is coupled to the rear wheel but there is no WIH it will couple 300HP to that rear tire. It looks like maybe it has a friction drive wheel buried where you cant see it.

While being completely useless for anything other then being a show bike. I will say this. It is a beautiful! The lines are sweet. It seems to flow and has a 40s Zoot Suit feeling to it.
Elk and Yamaha Pat like this.

No matter what you ride. Just ride!
