Small, ugly and impractical - for me.

More I look at it the more I like it, of course it's not practical it's not designed to be practical  :015:

I'm more than happy with one facet being off (I'm busy buying an American Ironhorse Texas Chopper after all) but this one looks like just another sales chaser without character - IMHO. I tend to like the motard look in nakeds to be honest so I admit this is not my niche. Mostly I am grumpy about the size of the sport bikes on offer these days - made for jockeys it seems. Put a 6 ft'er on 'em and it looks like Mike on a Minibike! But, to each his own and if you like 'em, power to you brother. It's a bike and that's what counts, right?

Not for me, as the pegs are too high and bars too low (did they say the bars are 135mm lower and 40mm forward, and pegs higher compared to a Speed Trip?), but I quite like the idea.
What really gets my goat is charging extra for a red one  :013:

Sounds like this may be the ticket for you (with street tyres if you want a motard)  :745:


Good to see the big bore thumper is not quite extinct - that's a 21 model, and still under 150kg.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
