Yes 1800!

Looks like a nice cruiser..

But only if you're a German speedcop.

In my opinion - hideous in production form. The design concepts were much better looking, especially the second one.

But, like the design concepts, where do you put your feet ?
The cylinders are right where your feet should go on a cruiser styled bike. Look at the chap in the 1st concept pic.

But I don't think it's very comfortable to ride like that(legs forward) Not for long cruise anyway..
