$20k Uber-bike announced

Beru F1 Systems, a German motorsport company that seems to specialize in data acquisition components, has announced its intention to build its very own superbike, the Factor 001 as early as next year. Our favorite bit is the Beru-branded (and UCI illegal) disc brakes, which go with the proprietary dual crown fork , (tiny) headset, cranks, saddles and so on. Their goal is to create "ultimate training tool combining innovative design and advanced electronics to record and analyse biometric data." It'd be cool to see one of these on the road, but for the time being, it could be hard to justify something that can't be raced in UCI-sanctioned events.
