The 250 makes for a fine Sport Touring steed.

5 million Euros sounds kind of cheap.

I should have checked the couch for loose change  Lol

I wonder what they're getting for 5 mil? Seems like the trademark alone would be a pretty penny. I wonder if the Malaysian company that owned them is taking most of the factory equipment.

Sounds like they won't be building the same 1000cc parallel twin, so that might be the case.

I just hope they come back again. Fine machines and pretty well bullet proof.

Me too. This one has been haunting my dreams since seeing it at the Burger Run.
