According the OTL, the XXXXXX is based on an 1800cc version of the new BMW twin and has a Maserati Birdcage type space frame modified to use the drivetrain as an integral frame component. It was estimated that the frame is built up from approximately 8347 soda straw sized titanium tubelets, each being between 1" and 5" long; this results in two major frame components that together weigh in at 2.853 Kg. This bike also had a mono-post trailing arm front suspension with 100% anti-dive/anti-rise geometry built in! It was able to do this without resorting to any suspension movement snubbers or other weight adding components.

The XXXXXXXX is reported to have a fairing laminated out of radar frequency (10.5 and 24 GHz) absorbant multilayered foam, such that the bike will not reflect any more radar signal than an aluminum framed Trek bicycle, this results in a 80% reduction in the range at which the bike can be clocked by police radar; this is assuming that the rider does not have metal framed eyeglasses.

Overall, the XXXXXXX weighs in at 241.3 lbs, and with the nominal horsepower figure of 162 that was quoted for the 1800cc twin the bike should actually arrive on the showroom floor with acceptable performance capabilities. It is estimated that the XXXXXXX will out accelerate a P-51 Mustang from rest to any speed achievable by the XXXXXXX; and further, the Cologne show exhibit had an action film showing that the XXXXXX could accelerate downhill quite a bit faster than acceleration achieved by an object in free fall.
