    There has been a lot of publicity since it's unveiling the other day. A good friend, and flat track racer, sent me the unveiling news as soon as it popped. He's got a 750 flat tracker but the new 1200 is a street model. He's going to be racing one next year that's being fixed up by the Roland Sands race team. Since it's a street bike it will be used by the Hooligan flat trackers, street bikes modified for flat track racing. 120HP and 85 FP of torque stock. It can only be raced on the longer race tracks.

    In answer to your question, I think it's the most exciting bike to hit the streets in a long time and there are some beauties hitting the street this year from Guzzi, KTM and others.

    The exhaust is as ugly as the stock Rocket exhaust, for that money I , me and myself would rather have the Thruxton.
