I put in my two cents worth a while a go with the idea of a xb based supermoto. But with the talk happening here I figured I go one more. What about a bored out blast (650cc) with FI in the supermoto trim??????????????

Only 3200 mi., alas. That monsoon winter in So. Cal. kept me grounded for months!

Default Now that would be cool.

I really can't imagine an XB-based motor in a dual-sport or adventure-tourer. But a neo-supermoto with a reworked Blast thumper? Now that just might work.

There has been some speculation about a DP bike, an uprated corner carver, and an S3T replacement.



Hey Erik: If a new model is a DP bike or an S3T replacement, my wallet is yours. Sorry I missed you in Seattle, I wanted to thank you for making cool bikes.



As the owner of a pumped S3T, I'm looking forward to this. My S3T is the coolest bike I've ever owned. Sure, it's been a pain in the arse from time to time, but it's a freaking kick to ride.



I've looked at all the adventure/DP bikes over the last couple of years, but none has hooked me. C'mon Erik, bring some attitude.

I'd be interested in hearing a review when you've got 15K on it or so. It's good to hear that it's been a great experience so far, but that's not a lot of miles to really draw a conclusion from. I really like the frame design on these things, but the bikes still make me nervous based on a Buell I had in the 90s. I ride a lot of miles, and commute about 2K miles a month (rain or shine in OR!) and ride a bunch more, so I'd love to hear how they handle a 25K mile year.

Still, love to hear from happy Buell owners, hope Moto Cysz shows as much promise and owner loyalty.

Ha-ha, that's actually the V-rod engined Dakar sidecar rig that MO wrote about a while ago.</p>


There's something funny about that picture: how come there is absolutely no sand coming off the knobbies or undercarriage?</p>
