That is definately the coolest application I've seen for the 20b yet. Problem is, I'd never drive it. WAY too much power per pound on that little bike. I would probably kill myself.

Besides, that setup probably breaks 200mph easy, when would somebody need that? I mean, on the steet

That was on 2-Wheel Tuesday on Speed a few weeks ago. It was only like a 1 min. cameo though.

Yeah, but you'd die happy.

That question can be applied to all 20Bs. As I've said in the past, it's like going rabbit hunting with a bazooka.

I like it.

Atilla the fun was refering to the power to weight ratio of the bike with the 13b and a street driven fc/fd with a 20b.

Smile Father of Rotohak checking in.

I just came across this thread about my bike. Glad to see some other rotary fans out there. As you might immagine, it is a handfull at anything aproaching full throttle, but a blast to ride. Nothing much on the road can keep up with it. The rotohak.com website now has a link to the Speed Channel 1 minute clip referred to in this thread. Cheers!
