Hacker's 10

Looks like the fuel tank is incorporated into the seat base for more capacity...
Anyone know if this true..?

The only thing I know is that during pre-season testing Hacker said something about the bike being pretty good and it didn't even have "his" gas tank yet. It must be special.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

Yep, my guess would be that the fuel is mostly under the driver seat. Which would make sense. Will it make a difference? Time will tell.

If you gotta ask you can't afford it.

And this is not Endurance, they were not looking for more fuel capacity

but it does lowers center of gravity nicely.

Also looks like the top of the tank is quite a bit lower, most likely so he can tuck in better on the straits.

I realize AMA is not Endurance...!
I'm looking at MY options to use this
configuation for an endurance application.
