I agree. I would much rather see more shots of the bike running, hear it move up and down the rev range while in gear, etc. I don't need a review summary, I just read the article for that.

I just might open my pocket book for this one. Better looking than the V-Strom, cheaper than a Multistrada- AND it has fully adjustable decent suspension. Buy yeah, it won't last long here in the states.

I can't get past that Transformers look, especially the headlight. My 5 year old would love it. It's going to change into Optimus Prime! Great value though.



With no Z750S, the naked Kawi fans won't have much else to choose from.



I'll stick with the Monster. Great daily inner city commuter, laughing in the helmet fun in the canyons, and I just got back from a 900 mile jaunt up and down the Cali coast - comfy as can be. And oh what a sexy Italian donna bella. Now that's a naked!

As for me, I'll take my `96 ZX9R with LSL superbike bar and no mo fairing. 132 horsies, 70 fruit loops o' torque, aluminum frame (no buzz) $1600 on craigslist with 8000 miles.

So, what's the story on the mini-moto pictures? There's no mention of 'em in the article.



Nice story on the Z, though.

They probably blacked out at the buffet before they mounted the minis.

Two randomly randomish thoughts:



1. Just seeing a picture of the pillion caused me to have a 'roid flair-up.



2. If like me you have approximately zero interest in the Kustom Kandy Khrome Kolored Kruiser du jour of the day, then yes; the Euro's get a LOT of cool stuff that we don't...alas I prefer living here in the land of the sort of free and home of the vaguely politically correct & sadly overtaxed...



Now back to observing the decline of American culture and the rise of Kultursmog.

Nice. Looks like a half-price, half-sized Multi. It's got "ugly" covered in spades (nothing wrong w/that), decent range and suspension specs, and can be had with Givi bags.



Perfect practical commuter--I hope they'll sell more three of them.
