The 180 horsepower 1250cc supercharged version of the V-Roehr Superbike looks like it will be going ahead for 2008. Roehr announced today they’ve acquired a financial partner which will give them the necessary funding to complete development and begin production next year.
The Harley Davidson Revolution powered sport bike looks very interesting and seeing this small U.S. company turning out a 180 horsepower corner carver is definitely a positive development. I’m looking forward to seeing these on the road.
