The influences for this one come from dirt bikes of the past (hence the name) and I guess sits somewhere between a Ducati Monster and a Suzuki Bandit with off-road tyres. Voxan build their own engines, no stealing from Suzuki or Ducati here, The fuel injected 72 degree V-twin is bare and pleasingly simple and the frame tubes double up as the oil tank (its got a dry sump) and cools the bike too. There’s no balancer shaft but the design of the 73 degree V-twin engine means it’s a vibrating technical compromise between Aprilia’s 60 degree and Ducati’s 90 degree lump.
