Cool. Turd slow, but cool. It'd be a good alternative to a scooter as a fuel efficinet commuter. More fun too.

Dammit build something that's not NICE and see what sells then.

SM 650R 55hp will sell !!! screw the nice people thier sissys any way.

Yes they can they missed the chance to be a real hooligan and buy a street legal Sumo like the 690 SMC or 610 Husky!

Not even in the same ballpark as this bike, totally different target market.

Decent looking alternative to a scooter for a city dweller though.

is the price was closer to $3k instead of $5k, these things would sell like hotcakes.

you can get almost 30 hp out of one of these motors. not bad for a 240 lb bike.

Honda needs to jump on the supermoto bandwagon already. Not everybody has the money to buy a CRF and then do the whole motard conversion. Although, a streeted CRF450 motard woud be pretty insane, minus the extra valve maintenance they're supposedly known for needing

Take it to the STREETS!
