You know.......
 
If they raised the bike 2 inches and put the front suspension of the BMW K1200s on the thing I'd consider the bike- right after I win the lottery. Looks cool, completely useless for anyone but a poser.

Nice write-up guys.

Well it certainly isn't a DL650 VStrom.

Loved your comment about Robb Report Motorcycling. If that isn't the biggest joke of a magazine I don't know what is. Ad copy is more critical than that overpriced piece of crap (the magazine not the motorcycle). The RR editors should be embarrassed they even print that thing.

Thx, Buz. I hate to bag on RRMC, as I really like the guys who write it. But I couldn't give them a pass on this one.

Also, I just received word from Travert that there is some sort of new component for the V-REX that somehow increases ground clearance. More on that when I have more info.

It wouldn't be called a "Centerstand" or a "Motorcycle/ATV Jack", by chance?

Yawn
 
Another billet barge, even if it's alloy. Can't believe you're getting excited about bar-end indicators - they've been around in Europe for the past forty-plus years as a common BMW aftermarket trinket; and as for single-sided front ends, have a look at what people like Ludovic Lazareth do. Sorry, but this is just overpriced, unoriginal, and probably unrideable, too.

A little tough on the Robb Report Mag there Buz. They are just catering to the Starbucks crowd.

I had one of those awhile back. It was blue
 
You know, I actually had one of those awhile back. It was blue. They called it the GTS 1000. Mine was cooler.

I actually made the mistake of subscribing to RRMC. Glossy photos and style articles weren't my cup of grog.
