I saw this, and posted a reply twice. Let's hope this one does not disappear.

Interesting bike, and it looks like a fun project. I found it curious that the engineers scrapped the Paralever front suspension in favor of race forks. Maybe they wanted to save time buying an off-the-shelf solution rather than modfying the Paralever. Too bad the article did not mention this.

Somehow, I suspect they'll have better results than Harley's VTR1000 effort has yielded.
