    :o<3 One of the best looking bikes on here! Would look nicer with some carbons.

    Had to sell my Supersix Evo, a kidney and various other internal organs .... but I feel its worth it !!

    I know they aren't the lightest but the Racing Quattro are a good match for the rubbish Welsh road surfaces.

    If I can spare another organ a nice set of FFWD carbon wheels will be on the shopping list

    how does it compare to the evo then, was thinking of getting an oltre but i love my evo

    I haven't ridden my new bike yet but I demo'd one and found it to have a very similar feel to the Evo ..... very stiff yet compliant.

    I felt it was more snappy than the Evo, seemed to respond to a burst of acceleration slightly quicker but that could have just been my excitement at riding one .... bit more zip in the old legs !

    I think my main reason for going with the Oltre XR was the looks, I think its stunning and looks fast when standing still having its mugshot taken.

  • How can you buy something like that and have to wait 4 months to use it ?
    This would drive me crazy.

    The first Bianchi that I actually like. Enjoy!

    Stunning bike. Was looking at one of these from Epic off the 'Bay and it went for a steal but I got greedy and kept my powder dry to bid for a c59 that ended up well over my budget!
    All the gear and no idea...
