With Vic churning out whatever that new abomination is on the IMS story I understand how these are outselling them. Sad when the new American Motorcycle is out sold by a street legal snowmobile.

And it makes you wonder why nobody ever thought of a "street snowmobile" before.

God bless capitalism.

It's only a matter of time before someone comes up with a Spyder/Ski-doo conversion kit.

I still can't see the allure of riding one of these things. I'd rather have a S2000 or even a Miata.

Maybe not
 
I have a friend that has an RT. He actually tried to position it as superior to any two wheel offering. I don't see it. I would like to try a leaning version if and when they come out with one.

This one leans! The wrong way...

They can wave all they want but I never wave back.

I find it amusing that the article is criticising the electronic intervention. Do you not know, MO, that these are built for people that are not able to ride a real motorcycle for one reason or another? Everyone I know that is interested in them is incapable of riding on 2 wheels; some because they are physically too small, some because they lack coordination, and some because they are getting too old to hold up a 600+ lb motorcycle. This is the "I can't quite ride a motorcycle" motorcycle. In my opinion, there are plenty of convertibles out there that offer some wind in your hair, more safety, and better performance for less money than this monstrosity. It figures that a dumbed-down motorcycle would sell in the US. The majority of the population is dumbed down at this point. Sad.

Some don't even know what paragraphs are.

El Stupido!
