It's probably a nice enough bike, but it's at the bottom of my SM list.

A guy at work has one. It's a pretty nice looking bike and quite small actually. Being much cheaper than the other SMs it would make a pretty nice beginners bike.

I can be spared the "legendary Honda reliability" stuff though. I've owned too many to fall for that one.

If I were a beginner I'd want something cheaper than $5.5K or whatever this thing is. Hell, I can get a new '09 Ninja 500 for $4.5K at the local Kwacker dealer.

Jeez, I can't say anything nice around here.

Actually the Honda is more like 4.7K. The Yammie is 6K.. almost as much as a DRZ400SM and $700 more than a DR650. I just don't get DP pricing. I bet the manufacturers are overpricing DPs like they are cruisers to pay for those pointless sport bike redesigns.
