http://www.autoblog.com/2009/11/09/crands-duu-concept-is-a-mototerminator-for-the-rest-of-us/ said: Those of you who had the stomach to sit through Terminator Salvation with your eyes open will remember the mototerminators that launched themselves from the legs of the giant collectors. Those were actually based on Ducatis, but if you fancied the look of them, then Italian bike builder CR&S has something pretty close. Called the DUU Concept, the naked ride is a combination of "a sporty European rolling chassis powered by a muscular American big-twin." The engine is a 1.9-liter (117 cu. in.) X-Wedge supplied by S&S. Wrapped around that powerplant is a chassis that CR&S says can be tailored by the customer – although they don't indicate how beyond presenting the choice of single or two-seater versions. But since each DUU will be made by hand, one-at-a-time, we imagine they'll be happy to do anything your wallet will allow. The DUU Concept is being unveiled November 10 at the Milan International Bike Show. CR&S said it has plans to build them from next year, at €20,000 ($30,000 U.S.) apiece. Check it out in the gallery of high-res images below.

Here's the problem with concepts like this from Confederate or these dudes. They're just trying to do what yamaha has already done:

Why we don't get this bike is completely beyond my comprehension.

Uhh, isn't a rich guy's Confederate a Confederate? They start at twice the price of this bike and easily run over $100k for the wraith.

Either way I think that Abe Lincoln said it best "it is the type of thing that people who like this type of thing will really like"

Because even people who drive souped up diesel pick ups think that those exhausts are too big.

Why do the wheels not match? Why does it have those horrendous side pod... things on the front of the engine?

The pods have the headlights in them.
