Gilera 850 corse:

Ohlins suspension front and rear
Dual radial mount Brembo monoblock calipers
Carbon fiber
Chain driven
Street legal in countries cooler than the USofA

http://www.scoot-mania.com/GP850-Corse-h32.htm

Gilera GP 850 Corsa which takes the engine and the GP 800 road chassis of the maxi-scooter, while other elements have been borrowed from the supersports road version. The GP 850 Corsa has an upside-down fork and rear Ohlins suspension, a double side mounted crome exhaust and radial Brembo calipers which are the same as the Aprilia Tuono models.
The tail is more tapered than the previous GP 800, and has vertically placed lights in the place of the production series horizontal ones. The front is also new and currently has no headlight, but is characterised by a generous air intake modelled on that of the Aprilia RSV.
I want one.





























And before you ask, she does not come with the scooter.

Gah. Do not want. The model, of course, is something else entirely. But a monstrous scooter? I'd rather just have a real bike.

Scooters have a whole different feel than a motorcycle, and they are fun as hell!

It's still a scooter. And a really, really really ugly one at that.

Hey, those exhausts look familiar...

The Honda Ruckus is pretty nice. I think the tricked out ones are pretty awesome.

I've got to agree with BlaRo ...

To each his own, but I've never had any fun on a scooter. And that one looks like it's about to transform into a robot or something :lol:.

Do it for me.
Coolest scooter in the world is owned by a very rotund engineer somewhere around here. One part Ruckus, two parts rocket. He rides it downtown too.

The girls should come as part of the bike in a spares package.

But, if this sells at the right price, it may well end up in my garage since I'm looking for something cool at the moment, but the other half has forbidden my from a Ducati or anything similar.
