The 2010 Viper Diamondback

ViperDiamonbackYou need good news and the introduction of the second generation Diamondback cruiser from Viper Motorcycle Company shows that a manufacturer with a conservative approach, good marketing sense and a niche market (the performance cruising market) can still be viable in the worst economic climate we have ever experienced during our lifetime. The 2010 Diamondback is a joint venture with Ilmor Engineering, the sick 152″ V-Twin requiring to be massaged by the best engine specialists in the business to become the main sales pitch for this custom cruiser.

And don’t worry too much about  such a beast powering your bike. Viper included a proprietary engine vibration damping system that the company claims gives the Diamondback a much smoother ride than other V-Twins with many less cubic inches. Noteworthy to mention are the carbon fiber body (total weight is 610 lbs.), an on-the-fly adjustable air ride suspension system, an adjustable seat (down to 24″), easy adjustable foot controls, all LED’s lights, a sporty inverted adjustable front end, 6-speed transmission, hydraulic clutch, a 21″ front and 18″ 260/40-18 rear wheel/tire setup. Wheelbase is 71″ on a frame with a 34-degree rake (5-degree triple tree). For now the Diamondback is sold through selective Dealers and is not exported. Viper Motorcycle Company.

    I never saw one in person, but saw their Ads and I saw where they were doing a Promo for about, I believe, don’t hold me to it, but a $10,000 Disc. That would make it around $25 K. This Bike Looks like real quality and seems to be gorgeous. I don’t think they were at the Race Track in Daytona a month ago, but I could have missed them. I flew in for the Day only. I wonder if there are any around Lauderdale, Cyril This has to be the Fastest Bike around,(V-Twin) maybe even Built by any of the Heavyweights, Included ! ! think even Jessie would dig this RIDE !

    I am the Sales Manager at Strokers Dallas and we are a dealer for Viper Motorcycles. Yes, these bikes are quality made and are a frickin blast to ride. If anyone is interested in checking these out in person, stop by if you are in town – These bikes are heavily discounted right now and they are selling very well and we are getting great feedback from customers who now own them. Contact Johnny Gee if you would like more info, want to do a test ride, or if you just want to come touch one…These are very sexy and crazy fast bikes that offer a great ride – Kudos to Viper Motorcycles
