Getting into a financial partnership means that V-Roehr is closer to becoming production reality. And what a surprise will have those who much awaited some news about this beauty: instead of the 1130cc, 120bhp Harley V-twin which the bike was supposed to be fitted with, the V-Roehr has been upgraded to a 1250cc Harley V-twin, which means a lot more brute horsepower. Yupeee. I can’t wait to ride this beast :D
