Rotary in a motorcycle!?

Rotary in a motorcycle!?

Yeah, I know! crazy right?
If you're like me and thought the days of the rotary engine had died out with Mazda's legendary RX line of the '90s, then we have news for you!

This story posted on the 30th of October on shows what an awesome machine the Crighton CR700W really is.
With 220hp at 10,500rpm and 142Nm of torque at 9,500rpm, all by coming from the 690cc twin-rotor engine, we're yelling "TAKE MY MONEY!". Figuratively of course, as there are only 25 of these amazing bikes, and they come with a hefty price tag of around 85,000 British bounds.

Turns out this bike was actually designed and built in 2009, after ex-British Champ Brian Crighton joined forces with Rotron Power Ltd to create Crighton motorcycles.

OK, Let me at it! I need to ride a rotary motorcycle!
