Move to Europe where we have everything. Bring me a Honda Rune while you are at it.

I want a Honda Deauville. Same deal as the Transalps. They don't bring it to the U.S. Load of something...

Just get a used TDM850. Infinitely better bike.



Every time someone rolls up on a US legal Transalp, I just know they're going to be a fanboy twit. And they always are.

We don't need no stinking Transalp. What we need is for Suzuki to get off their butts and build a real off-road chassis for the SV650 engine. The bike could be no heavier than the KLR650 and have power like a rocket ship.



The DL650 is just an SV650 engine in a DL1000 chassis. The only thing they changed is to make the seat less comfortable so short people could reach the ground easier. All the weight savings comes from the lighter engine and only having a muffler on one side.

How is this bike different than the Suzuki V-Strom? Seems like V-Strom is more modern version of the same concept.
