Overdrive August 2000 issue. It featured a person from Ludhiana who has made a bike with a gypsy engine (the previous 1 litre one) and an RD gearbox. Red colour, and was a superb effort no doubt. I just couldn't get over it! He called it 'Franklin' for some reason (albeit slightly strange) which I can't remember. This issue also featured the Boss Hoss, MTT Y2K and some other whacko bikes! Will try and find that issue.

I wonder how these bikes sound ? Do they have a decent exhaust note ? Like the ones on SBKs ? Just asking. Commendable jobs, all these!

Why would they want to use a quad front suspension? I've never heard such a suspension before. Frankly speaking, this is the first time I'm seeing a mototcycle with a quad front suspension. Why can't they build with stronger springs, viscous oil or inverted telescopic combinations, instead of quad front suspension. Its looking very odd!!! Any techy answer to this is appreciated.

only reason that they wanted to use local parts. & there are no beefy shocks made in India which can support the weight of this bike.
check out this link for more info in quad front shocks.

the world famous NEANDER 1400 TURBO-DIESEL uses quad front shocks too.

Hmmm...I'm still finding this answer not so convincing.

But a 800 cc gasoline is much lighter than a 1400cc Diesel right?

Anyway, its upto them how they use, but it could just only be me who can't take the quad fronts. IMHO, they could've simply used FZ's or RE's, viscous oils to get the same job done.

Faster and Faster: Neander 1400 Turbodiesel: Yours for US$140,000!
Quote:
the intercooled Neander mill makes 195Nm of torque at only 2600rpm, which is about twice as much of what most litre-class superbikes make. The belt-driven Neander, with its six-speed gearbox, accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds, and top sped is 225km/h. So, yeah, this 270-kilo machine really is the oil-burner from hell.
i think the steel rhino also weights approx 250kg. that's why a quad shocks.
