    That Classic event has some REALLY unusual bikes, like the "XR69s" with big-inch Yamaha FJ motors. Definitely not period-correct either but still awesome. I think the event is sort of like the Reno Air Races, with old machinery packed to the gills with modern parts and tuning.

    848 disallowed. KTM 790 has to be the best bike, otherwise a 20K SV build.

    The class will play host to several 600cc to 800cc twin-cylinder bikes, with a rule package designed to allow freedom to builders and small shops to make their own modifications and custom builds. Engines can be extensively modified, as can some of the chassis components, and an open-ECU rule will make for a tuner’s dream. Low minimum weight limits add to that – also being the reason for strong power-to-weight ratios and undoubtedly quick lap times.
    Should be cool to watch

    With no official name for the Twins class yet, we'll be turning over the naming rights to MotoAmerica fans next week. Stay tuned. Also, stay tuned for part two of MotoAmerica Twins Class Explained.
    oh, this should be fun

    M/A's list of homologated motorcycles seems to exclude more bespoke machinery like the Paton S-1 / S-1R, and that's a shame.

    Those companies would have to be willing to put a bike through homologamation including paying the fee and support. That is pretty unlikely. That is assuming they even make enough of the bikes to qualify. The built Ducs and KTMs are exotic enough.
