That's a cool looking machine.  Got a lot of unique style to it.

I really like it, I personally prefer a bit more suspension travel for any off-road use but its still a nice looking bike to me.  They're claiming 27% more umphf...  I wonder how much that kit cost and how much reliability is lost.

A weird contraption. Fitting for a parfum brand photo shoot.  :o

The bike will set you back 8330 euro and you better start modding it first before taking it out in the dirt.
So more money to be thrown at it if one was going that way.
For a McQueen wannabee a nice addition to the front garden though.  ;D

I like the enfield scramblers and trials a lot.  It looks like Hitchcock's catalog stuff.  I'd be really easy to do, just a matter of money.

You need more suspension travel to do jumps but my G5 does great at slow speeds in the dirt with hagon low damped/moderately stiff spring-rate shocks.

They have several versions and each of them can be assembled from parts found in the Hitchcocks' catalog.

Actually they have a rather cool website and you don't need to know french to have a good time: http://www.tendance-roadster.com/index.htm

They don't pretend their version is a dirtbike. They describe it themselves as a city bike with allure, as it's most likely they will never leave the pavement. Sure saves time on washing and polishing.  ;D

There's a Iron Bike event coming up in a fortnight near Paris wherein they'll take part with 5 bullets: http://www.ironbikers.fr/
Video of last year's event is inviting.  8)
