Handsome devil..

This is our new motor. We have yet to take delivery as its being built now and we are saving our nickels to help accelerate our ship date. Rotary valve for the intake and a power valve on the exhaust should yield the power needed to push our streamliner beyond 165MPH in 2010. The BRC motor should also push our 'partial streamliner kneeler' to 145-150 depending on conditions of course, at this years Motorcycle Speed Trials By BUB.
This handsome devil, like the Aprilias, uses a rotax bottom end. We tried in vain to acquire an Aprilia RSA GP motor but it turns out they are unobtainable at the moment with only a hand full being used in the Grand Prix paddock. I have heard HP figures as high as 57. Very difficult to tune and if you get it wrong a replacement cylinder and top end will run you over $5000.00!
In the end the BRC motor and parts are much more appropriate for our budget and goals.
