Reminds me of the GN125. But looks like a great entry level.

I always think of Tony Curtis lisping, "Hi, I'm Tony Curtith. I'm a gladiator!"

I think more like 115 years actually.

It's $3,600 and still has drum brakes front and rear. It's almost 2009. Who the hell are they kidding?

In other news, the DN-01 is up for sale in the USA on Honda's website. They only want $14.6k for a 680cc v-twin scooter. Morons.

The brakes aside, $3,500 is competitive priced with the virago, 250r, etc...

The DN-01 pricing is completely retarded and Honda should be publicly beaten for such stupidity.

Yeah the styling of that scum sucking dog Gladius. And its getting worse: it was touted as having "stylish European look". Good lord. We are peace loving over here but people have been knifed for lesser insults.

(rant)

Anyone is surprised by this Honda's pricing? The VFR800 is as much as a SprintST1050. The Helix250 scooter is as much as a Burgman400. An ST1300-730poundpig is over $1k more than a ZX14 Concours. The 1000cc Honda competition for the Bandit1250 is thousands more. The list goes on and on. You don't get one tiny bit more quality for the extra money. Honda can KMA.

Their generators are overpriced and overrated too. While Honda has slept even Subaru has entered the small engine market. You can get as good small engines from Subaru and Kawasaki for less $.

Why Honda hasn't lost more market share is a tribute to the same sort of dunderheads who kept HD alive during the AMFcrap years. And Honda will screw them too like HD did. Nyah nyah nyah.

(end rant)

I don't like the TU, I love it.

There's something in a simple single four stroke that does it. In fact, Savage has been a long time number one on the list of the bikes I want to buy (ok so there are numerous other #1s also)

The dealers didn't like the stripped down version? Bloody morons. That's how God intended them singles to be. BTW Fox, there's a disc in the front.
