I like everything about it - except the price.

That article was a blast! Hopefully, the low weight technology of New Blue will trickle down to road bikes.

I'm sure it could if we wanted to pay for titanum parts rather than steel

Light bikes

ARC Fabrication offers full bikes that can put one in the same category as New Blue for less money. The single pictured on the site sight belongs to my friend Guy and actually weighs 220 lbs, wet!

Lightness is always a good thing for a motorcycle, but "New Blue" is an expensive way to get there, plus, being a "track-only" bike means its much easier to do than for a streetbike (just leave the weighty bits off).

Ducati can build a relatively light 2V bike and keep it affordable. Look at the weight savings miracles they just performed on the 1098. Let's have a new, lightweight, non-retro SS return to the product portfolio!
