The Neander Turbo Diesel motorcycle is another new bike getting very close to seeing the light of day in production trim. The guys have been thrashing the prototype to make sure everything is in order:
Our team of test drivers allowed our prototype to taste the spring asphalt, by running it from Munich through France into Southern Spain and back.
Sounds like the prototype is running very well. Then they mentioned something else:
we have almost completed the chassis construction for the “real” NEANDER. With its full-grown wheel length of 1930 mm and the daunting twin-forks
Twin forks? I didn’t notice that before, but then I wasn’t watching constantly so this may have been out there for a while. If you go to their website, they have quite a few concept drawings showing the twin forks, no photos, though. Interesting. Is that a design feature only or is there a functional advantage of some sort?
The final form of the Neander will be shown this summer. I think quite a few folks have been waiting for this one, a turbo diesel cruiser that performs. Very cool. Now, if someone could just get the Thunder Star 1200 into production, we would have all of the bases covered in the diesel motorcycle world.
