Looks cool. Seat height seems astronomical? Or maybe that's just the pics.

I'll take mIne with the alloy wheels thanks. Don't trust the carbons for potholes.

The Enigma seems to be well underway into production.

It uses a Speed Triple 1050 engine, a new frame and a bunch of other lovely bits.

if there is sufficient interest, the team will be looking to sell production models in both kit and ready built form

I really like the white version.  As a fan of the Guzzi MGS-01, this speaks to me in the same way.

It looks like it might be lighter, but I didn't see where the kneeeslider article mentioned weight.

The overwhelming majority of STN riders won't buy it anyway if it doesn't have ABS. Then it'll need in-house special-built hard bags, heated grips, adjustable ergos, an electro-adjustable windshield and on and on... if the threads abut Motus are any indication.

In the end, once the committee is done, it'll be another fat pig.    Lol

...and don't forget reverse gear.
FJR doesn't have that.

Ahem.

I like it.
Sexy and likely a whole bunch more accessible than the megabuck MGS-01.

Nice. I miss bikes with half fairings. These days it's either full fairing or naked.
