After some significant teasing and some very tight-lipped marketing, or, I should say, non-marketing, Voxan has unveiled their new bike at the Salon de Moto, Paris today. I’m keeping an eye on Domenick for actual details.
(update: First story I’ve seen, with some awesome shots, here, on motorbiker.com.)
Here are some photos from their Facebook page, updated about 45min ago.
Their site, www.voxan.com, shows a bunch of blurry background photos in a slideshow and a launch time of 8 hours or so from now. 3PM EST. You know. If you don’t have
a life other more important stuff to hang every breath on.
It looks very large. And what’s with the bald look? I guess it’s very, uh, Monegasque.
update: OK, I think this model is growing on me…
