Musket 998 Road Test

It may be only February and by far not the best time to test a custom motorcycle in the northern hemisphere, but for the creator of the amazing Musket 998 bike, this is only a small, negligeabl detail. Despite the cold outside, Aniket Vardhan went on for some road testing of the Musket 998, now getting closer and closer to the final shape.
Riding hard a bike at 48F (under 9 Celsius) while being dressed in the “greasy shop clothes” and wearing only a helmet and gloves may not be the ideal conditions for a test ride, but if you know the Musket's story so far, you'll quickly understand that Aniket's passion for this bike cares too little about few miles on the road.

The Musket sounds pretty good, especially when throttling hard, and looks like it could easily race “pedigree” machines shoulder to shoulder. We would however love to see the Musket 998 with some really brutal exhausts, such as some SuperTrapp, or even some asphalt-scorching Akrapovic cans.
