V-Rex goes into production - March 11, 2009, 10:46 AM

Traverston V-Rex goes into production

Think a standard Harley V-Rod's a bit bland? Then this is the bike for you



It Looks like it should be starring on some Sci-Fi show, but now it's going on sale - and it'll cost you around $40,000.
The V-Rex has been designed by Christian Travert, uses the motor from a Harley-Davidson V-Rod, is built in Fort Lauderdale, USA and looks like nothing else currently on the market.

The bike made its first public appearance last June and it was apparently the huge amount of public interest in the V-Rex that spurred the Travertson company onto putting the behemoth into production.
Brilliant.

Interesting, but I wouldn't own one. Too "Transformers" for me.

Men are qualified for civil liberties in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their appetites: in proportion as their love of justice is above their rapacity...Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters. ~Edmund Burke, Political Theorist and Philosopher

Sweet! Not that I'll ever be able to afford one, but that thing looks like an American equivalent of an Akira bike.

The Akira bike is surely a modern, more impressive inline 4.

Harley V-twin =

Really doesn't look like weight was any concern so they should have just gone all out and made this thing electric.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.
