Poll: Would you buy the Roehr 1250 superbike?

In this week's MCN, Adam Child tests the new supercharged Harley-engined superbike from Roehr. It's dripping with quality parts, hence the £36,500 price tag -  but would you buy one? Have your say in our online poll.

It's not hard to see where your money goes. The Roehr features a 1250cc V-Rod lump, Marchesini wheels, Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes and Akrapovic end cans mated to specially-design Vance and Hines down pipes. 

According to Adam Child, the "chassis feels instantly right: slender and lithe - yet more manly than a Ducati or KTM: taut, crisp and classy, with quality parts".

For the full report on the Roehr, see this week's MCN, on sale August 5.

But would you buy one? Does the price tag make it irrelevant for the average UK rider? Is the much cheaper Buell a better buy if you want an all-American sports bike experience? Have your say by voting in our poll or leaving your comments below.
