Hope they'll make it to production and last for some years. The idea behind it sounds good. Bike looks good, but for a brit bike a bit too Italo looking IMHO

bodywork not finalised yet...and i think the plan is to have a few variants if this one sells.... as has been said on other forums the issue will likely be cost, cant see this ever being a bike for the man in the street, gonna be Bimota prices i expect, but i do love the idea...and anything that gives our engineering in the uk a highlight is a bonus for me :028:

Interesting, I hope it succeeds, we've already seen Norton struggling, although they've got further than anyboby else has with that project, I still wonder how much life there is in that push rod engine?
At least the Enigma has a well proven unit with an excellent reliability record.
