Question I Wanted To Know What You Guys Think Of This Dodge

http://www.dodge.com/tomahawk/flash.html Ive read a few articles about the tomahawk I think that thing is just insane. Nobody in thier right mind is going to open something like that up on a street.

I think it is a dumb idea. I would be too scared to even sit on it, for fear of it falling over and crushing me!

Dodge needs to focus on trucks not motorcycles. There is NO way that thing would ever be produced. I remember hearing about this a few years back. Its just something for dodge to stir up some excitement around the company, but nothing more.

Yeah its just an engineering study to show what can be done, I guess. Not practical at all, just showing what can be done with some imagination. I don't know who they would be able to pay enough to test its top speed of 400+ mph. Just a way for the engineers and designers to show that an auto manufacturer can test the boundaries. Chrysler is the most imaginative manufacturer, and you never know what they may have the cahones to build. This is still a waste of time and money though, who would want a motorcycle that you can't drive. I would rather see more things like the PowerWagon, Jeep Rescue, Ram SRT10 and such.

This was a product that Dodge was experimenting with. They have mad very, and I mean very small numbers. There is no market for somrthignlike this. People that payed the big bucks that own these as showpieces can't drive them. They arn't street legal. The main reason for this is that it has no headlight. Obviously Dodge didn't build this for the general public. They should let the 8.3 liter Viper V10 remail exclusive to the Viper nad SRT-10. At leaste thats what I think about it.

I saw one up at the Sturgis Rally a couple of years ago. It is a cool idea, but I do not think that I would wanna drive it.

They only made 5 of those or so, any you arent even supposed to drive 'em, I dont think that they are mechanically sound.

They are building these on a very limited production schedule. If you have the price you can get it. Of course you can buy a couple of GT's for the price. And yes I would love to ride one. Nothing on 2 wheels scares me.


PS. This would probably be the only New Dodge I would own if I had the cash.
