Wraith or Hellcat X131?

Saudi Arabia

#1 Feb 12, 2012
I am in the process of acquiring one of these wonders as a week end toy.. I have a choice between a 2009 Wraith like new, and the new Hellcat 131 for the same price.
I understand that the Wraith is rarer and more valuable, however it is not a given that at the time of resale it will be easier to sell.
Is it a no brainer to acquire the Wraith? Against it is the probably too radical look as well.
Any help is appreciated!

The front end on the Wraith is just too funky for my taste, even the designer(Nesbett) said the front end was the bad point on the bike, but they had to make it that way to make it strong enough with the carbon fiber. I would have had the same problem had I even considered the Wriath, which I didn't. I went with the Hellcat and love it/

I ended up buying the Wraith.. I had the same issue with the front end design whenever looked at a picture, however when I saw it in person, it took me a minute to put the deposit down. Its a lot of money for a bike but definitely a piece of art. Sounds just as good as it looks.

I read about some reliability concerns over the net, I hope it will not be the case.
