Does Multi-tool refer to the testers or the bikes?

If the Honda's performance... slow with excellent mileage... is the wave of the future (and I fear it is) then it's time to just get a car.

Default Not every bike

Not every bike can have the ultimate components or specifications. Purpose and price point influence the offering.

A bar-riser kit and some peg-lowering brackets ought to take care of that.
