Putting the cat amongst the pigeons: the new Jaguar bike

Today's frankly awful title pun comes after pictures of the new Jaguar motorbike were revealed on the Internet. The trademark cat peers over the front wheel, giving this model a highly distinctive look that, in this bloggers' opinion, borders very closely between the sublime and the ridiculous.

The bike weighs in 360kg, and is powered by a 1200cc Buell 97 S3 Thunderbolt engine. Fancy one? You'll need to cough up £290,000.

More pictures can be seen at The Design Blog. Any thoughts?
