Very interesting , all-thought the homologating this bike for races outside UK is going to be steep battle.
On the side note, they are also building a modern version of the Commando! I hope it comes with a full black lather suit with black helmet, gloves...

I thought they tried this at the 2009 IOMTT but due to problems they were not able to complete any qualifying laps and thus were not allowed to actually race...
Such a shame, I really hope that these screaming machines make a return in worldclass racing, perhaps with a three-rotor version? Or four for that matter...
Nice videos

which wankel is it?
10A?
12A?

I don't think a 13B would fit, a 20B is ginormous for a bike and a renesis.... well it's just a 13B with factory side ports

my FD has a 13B turbo wankel, it is hard for me to picture it in a bike, but anything is possible with money I guess
