Ferrari V4 Concept Motorcycle

I have seen a couple of Ferrari theme motorcycles. But none using Ferrari modern and vintage best lines, technology and engine. This is a V4 engine based on the Ferrari Enzo Block shape. The oil sump was moved forward and the engine lower case was reshaped to a mono block gearbox 
that support the swing arm radial movements. Hydraulic 
engine unit supplies pressure for smart shock damping system and clutch. The engine is both air and water cooled with the lower fins taken from a traditional Ferrari engine 
and blending with the bottom of the fairing. The swingarm is a two arms radial mechanism. Movements are controlled by a radial shock pre loaded by composite material omega springs. You can choose from two modes for ground clearance and when needed a sensor will override any selection. The rider can select from two shock damping styles for each clearance mode. The Diagnostic and monitor info is of the type “touch screen” based on Ferrari engine management computer system. You can also operate and control suspension modes, GPS, radio, anti-theft device etc. Hand controls design was taken from the throttle quadrant 
of a F16 fighter jet.
 Switches are a mix of toggles push buttons and one- finger dials.
The idea is to match the control panel found on the Ferrari F1 steering wheel…

    No doubt, that guy has fantastic 3D skills, anyway Enzo Ferrari would be turning in his grave: technical ideas apart, that bike really look as an ugly cetacean… And a bike must be beautiful, namely a working and exciting technical object in a beautiful shape. A beautiful bike is when whatever old you be, whatever your culture degree be, you are totally dumbfounded and making your mouth water when you see it whizzing or standing. Timeless beauty. What about you’ll think of that bike in twenty years? Up with the concept bikes, but they are becoming all the same thing. IMO…

    Hi Nicker, try again, now it works.

    There’s two pages full off text and pics.(dressed and undressed)

    IMHO, the black version they’re showing looks much cooler .

    I would have expected a more aggressive, angular, look from Ferrari. This looks a little “swoopy” for my taste.
    However, I do like what’s going on under the skin! Lots of thought toward engineering, just not enough on style.
