Looks like a Hooligan was driven through a giant spiderweb seconds before slamming into a brick wall.

Nice! I liked the original one but I think this looks better. I didn`t know that Italjet was still around. The only problem is if it ever makes it to the States, CA regulations will completely alter it's looks. And hopefully American tastes will have advanced enough out of the 50`s and 60`s where this version will sell better than the original. If the the price is right , I may even sell my Blur to buy one of these.

There are two numbers that make me want one- 19.8 and 112.

19.8 is the amount of horsepower and 112 is the weight in kilograms(~247 pounds.)

That is like a Buddy 125 with twice the horsepower!




And there might even be an option to get ~22 horsepower(16.5 kilowatts.)

Nailed it! Ha!

I'd buy one in a second if they came to the US. But I'm not holding my breath. The really cool stuff rarely hits our shores.

Last I recalled, didnt Italjet get purchased by an Indian company after they folded? Or is this the original manufacturer with a fresh investment resurrection? Pray with me for a quality build behind it. I freakin' LOVE all Dragsters and would so purchase this new one! I wish they offered a bigger motor (400cc) but I could live with the 200cc liquid cooled model.

I like the spring loaded ejector seat. Very Happy
Perhaps best driven in daylight.
