    Fwiw I too prefer the looks of yours to the "Ltd Edition" one.
    Whilst niggles you could plainly do without, none of the issues sound insurmountable (except perhaps the legislation hurdles).?
    It would seem that they would be better occupied attending to sorting out their existing models than creating a short-run gimmick version linked to a celeb' who's generally associated with Ducati.

    The Foggy special is the 7th variant and there are still people waiting for the second one!
    This a large number run bike as the original bike that I have was 150, most other ones were 250 along with a RAF one that was 100 bikes.
    Plenty more to come I reckon...

    Well, I have sold this bike over the weekend
    I've never waited so long for a bike or owned one for such a short time and loathed it so much.
    Bye bye Spitfire, you were a Focke of a bike!
     
  4. I sat on one today at the show, horrid, just can’t see a market for a £10k bike that looks and feels like a 125

    They have captured a niche buyer as they launched variant number 8 at the show..
    All of which can only be ridden in the UK as they are made under the MSVA program...
