That's from a few years ago, a privately designed and built chassis for the RSV. If I recall it was made in The Netherlands.

Hit it on the head, Ricky.
Aprilia actually expressed some interest after seeing the end result and offered another bike for a Mark II version, but it has fallen off the radar since then.
I'm always interested in alternative design, but the fact of the matter is, telescopic forks work purty damn well when set up properly, and it will take a major shift in the industry before we see mainstream alternatives that work as well.

I may not leave the pocketbike to rot in the garage after all :)

I'll take 2 please.
Seriosly though, thats pretty coollooking. I have been thinking about an 50cc/tuono conversion since we dont have an 50 cc tuonos here in the states, and even if we did, theyd be more then i want to spend.

I just can't believe we haven't seen this configuration in MotoGP yet.
