I suppose it's just too good to be true but if it is for real I just might be interested.....

Translation of Page -

Nothing more than an exercise in style, a joke in photoshop, but the truth is that gave me joy "invent" this mount for a round of April 1 ...


Going to get some of those bikes that make me dream today, I tried to display the Pan future, more aggressive, with an increased capacity to 1400 cc, with more torque and more horsepower 6 changes. Taking based on the current NAP, added some of the new Honda VFR 1200 and the Kawasaki GTR 1400, to get this picture of what I want it to be the future.


For it is an evil dream, but it was a game well nailed! April 1, the day of lies! Good curves! ;-)

No harm done........it's bad enough remembering things I have done without having to remember things I haven't done: or other words to that effect.

Quite well done photo shop. As some of us know, the ST1300 needs some improved aerodynamics before adding more power.
I love being right. If only it happened more often...

Looks to me like someone just faded in a few Kawasaki Concours bits and called it a day. I would be disappointed if this were the new Pan.

That's basically what the fellow who did it said - a few Kawi bits and some VFR bits Photoshopped together. The dead giveaway is the way the silencers come out of the bike. ;-)
