Just been reading about this in MCN, brought over recently with Ross. I would buy this without hesitation were I still living in a country with less traffic than Bangkok. Luckily for our bank balance...
All 200 of the V4 SS bikes have been sold (at £44 000 a pop!) and the first batch of 250 RR models look to going the same way at a more modest £28 000.
Prepare to drool:
