I dunno... I could afford one now. I could also afford something similar that used a few less exotic materials, did 0-60 in under 10 sec, and got a mere 130 mpg.

I think I would rather just build my own fully electric motorcycle for around $4k and throw some aero fairings on it. You would get more distance with less electricity (more "mpg"). Hmmm, tough choice... Cheaper, lighter, more range and faster (depending on what motor you go with).

I will admit... Those are some pretty kick a** mirrors.
