A fairly advanced vision of a bagger developed based on the flagship Beheme. The gender codes are met, with a low pace and elusive, a minimalist windshield, stylish of bags carried by a sleek rear axle, and a general loan finesse profile. We find in the heart of the majestic concept 101 inline 6-cylinder 1643 cm3, contained in a perimeter aluminum frame.
