Most of you may have already seen it..but for those who havent..

The latest crossover between the world of the steel stallion and the prancing horse is this custom chopper, powered by the 140-hp engine from the Triumph 955 Triple. The high-gloss red paintjob even comes complete with race livery, The bike was recently up for sale on eBay for about fifteen grand.

I cant understand why the sarcasm if they used Triumph's engine....they are one of the very reliable bikes around with awesome power.....

"Viper Guy: That's a laugh. A Ferrari with a Triumph engine."

"Pawan Guy: whats wrong with people now a days you want a ferrari go out and buy one its a triumph kept it as one soon people would want to convert their hyundai into a audi r10."

Anyone explain to me is there anything wrong making imagination come true.....at least the guys built a bike which would not ashame any ferrari fan in performance....Just for ur info FERRARI does not make bike engines so dont really think they had any choice other than looking elsewhere for engine.....

C'mon guys start thinkin outside the box for once and see the difference it makes

Out of the box...for sure!
The thought of Ferrari (Racing) and Triumph (Cruise) do no go very well though IMHO.

thinking outside the box will lead to rice modifications lets just say modify it but keep it in the same name.

may be u guys dont know that triumph does make very good super bikes as well...not just cruiser....try googling triumph daytona....and speed triple(the bike u might have drooled upon when u might have seen it in MI2)

Thats a triumph....now if someone makes a bike inspired by ferrari does that means that it doesnt go with ferrari... in bike terms that bike wouldnt be no less than a ferrari status also in performance feild either....

triumph are very reliable bikes...cruisers as well as the sports bikes as well....they are top end high performance bikes from britain....dont just go for the name see the spirit....the bikes just inspired by ferrari...not a production ferrari which needs a ferrari engine yaar...

think of it....if u have the resources to make a ferrari inspired bike would u seriously be thinkin abt ferrari engine in it to make it genuine and on top of that do u seriouly think ferrari s gonna make a special bike engine for ur bike.....

as far as rice is concerned there is modified rice....genetically....they still called it rice last time i checked.....

Aww gee whiz, us folk don't know nuthin' 'bout dem big cars, mistah.

First mistake: Addressing someone as 'xxxx guy'

Second mistake: Treating us like village idiots who don't know what Ferrari makes and doesn't make.

Would you be similarly appreciative of a Hyundai Santro badged Ferrari, with prancing horse livery everywhere, in a nice shiny red? Well, we wouldn't.
