Not to mention completely broke, after they spend endless dollars on bash plates, shifters, etc. trying to make a chicken swim like a duck. Or something like that.

Why do you want to see a fat man on a mini bike?

Nice article Pete. Looks like a decent bike to commute on. Nice bags decent wind protection. Good torque .

I have to agree that it looks better in person. Having sat on one, I'd like a test ride. It looks like a nice bike and I think it would be great fun, but being the power 'ho I am I'd like to see a liter version to compete with the V-Strom DL1000 and Multistrada, which it looks like.

100% correct. What bikes like the Multistrada and new Tiger and Versys are really made for is twisty narrow back roads where the long travel suspension and upright ergonomics rule... canyons, mountain passes, etc. NOT offroad.



P.S. Questions for Kevin Duke: how does the Versys compare with the Multistrada 620? Also what did you think of the Dunlop tires compared to the Pirelli Scorpion Syncs that the MTS and Tiger use?
