for me the pgm is bit more of a serious effort and beautiful like a finely crafted pistol think .357 smith and wesson

I was expecting a Boss Hog. This looks interesting. $180K, a little out of my price range though.

Difference being the Viper-powered one won't go round a corner, the V8 still retains a lot of it's handling capability.

My Kawasaki Avenger (350cc) weighed 310lbs, had 42hp and did 13 sec quarters. I cannot understand why anyone would want an automobile engine in a bike. It looks a bit like a murdercycle!!

the viper cycle was not production and I agree it is just because we can. The pgm is a small engine low center of gravity hi hp mc engine given the hp the performance must be crazy

Very interesting I have not seen this one before. I will try to dig up some info.

And yes I thought this was going to be a Boss Hoss bike...which is exactly the same as normal bikes..but without all of the handling benefits of a normal bike :-)
And of course if you ever drop one..not so easy to pick up.
