Scooter thing is kinda cool, I'd rock it once to see how it is.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

from honda , 60 horsepower and almost 600 lbs shaft drive and 14,599$ all sounds like crap to me , i'd almost rather ride a gurney alligator , but theyre both gay as hell

The engine is a four-valve, 680cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 52-degree V-Twin derived from the Euro-market Deauville 700. Instead of a gearbox and clutch, or a CVT's pulley-and-belt transmission, it uses Honda's "Human-Friendly Transmission" (HFT). The HFT is a compact—and complex—piece of engineering that uses a system of hydraulic pumps and motors instead of a belt to deliver infinitely variable gear ratios. Three different drive modes—Economy, Sport and a six-speed "Manual"—offer riders some control and a varying exhaust note. With about 60 horsepower pushing the claimed 595 pounds of wet weight around, the motor won't exactly break the land-speed record

To take full advantage of that, the DN-01 offers sportbike-like chassis elements. It uses 17-inch radial tires, a 41mm fork and a single-sided, monoshock-equipped rear wheel. Dual three-piston calipers with ABS are linked to the rear brake, and the whole thing is wrapped up in sporty bodywork. But the bike also has shaft drive, a low 27.2-inch seat, a long 63.2-inch wheelbase and a cruiser-ish riding position complete with floorboards. At $14,599 it's more expensive than most scooters or middleweight sportbikes. Technically, it's not a scooter, as the motor/drive unit is not part of the rear swingarm, and the 4-gallon fuel tank is located in front of the rider. It's a...well, Honda calls it a "crossover."

This coming from a guy who rides an Aprilia? Talk about an overpriced bike with mediocre performance...


Seriously though, it's not supposed to be a sportbike man, it's something different to make the market more accessible to more people. Automatic transmission and a little cooler looking than a scooter, I like it. The only thing holding it back is the $15k pricetag, drop that to $6500 and you have a winner.

I saw it at Laguna. It is pretty cool and has a low seat height for my short legs. I do agree however, $15k is a lot.

Take Care and ride safe,

p.s. I am talking about the bike not Tina Fey, although.......

600 lbs and forward floorboards , i don't think the term "rail" would apply here , and hey, i got the aprillia cheap ( used) and as long as drag racing is not a point of comparison it does pretty good , everything i have owned before has been a wreck i got cheap and put back together myself so i decided to treat myself this year

Ever seen GrayWolf "rail" a Goldwing? - Ever seen Troy lean his HD Deuce? - Ain;t the bike homeboy, it's the rider - Drag Hardparts!

Mediocre performance??? I guess mediocre means winning The Masterbike competition in 06 and 3rd overall this year, (but won it's class as the best Vtwin to advance to the finals). Not too bad for a 5 year old design.

I guess he could be like everyone else and buy a Gixxer.
