I wish bikes like that were available in the US. An awesome little powerplant (not the never changing ninja 250), easy ergos, great gas mileage, killer handling, and all in a very capable package. A package like this simply doesn't exist to the US market. It makes me sad.

Nuclear powered bike? I have enough worries about road rash and the like... the last thing I want running through my mind on my Sunday cruise is that I have several gallons of boiling water and steam under pressure inches from my crotch... not to mention a few pellets of uranium neighboring my DNA warehouse.

Smaller, lighter, and simpler in a sport standard (semi-naked), with top flight suspension and brakes at a reasonable price would be nice -- sort of a Ducati Monster without the desmo hassles and price premium.



The XR650-based, trellis-framed racer featured in this month's Cycle World, with a few minor changes would make an awesome commuter/canyon flyer, or an update on the TL1000 or Superhawk with high-end suspensions and brakes (how much more could it cost the manufacturer to just build great suspensions rather than crap?) and rational ergonomics would be wonderful

Hell with a new engine, go for a different chassis orientation. How about a 150 hp. Segway?

I heard him fire it up at a bike show a few years ago. It did sound awesome. Like a H-D twin with an extra beat thrown in.



Not the most attractive thing in the bike though.
