Motorcycle handlebars do not belong inside a car.

Heh heh. Imagine the steering ratio on the 'sportbike' styled SX. Heh heh. Twitch city. Too bad it's got 4 wheels which makes it a cage. A rose by any other name....

The pickup is just a rebadged Xterra with an altered grille right? Sort of like a GMC vs a Chevy truck? Looks like it. Nice small trucks, but the mileage leaves a bit to be desired. Okay for light off road duty but the poor mileage and smallish fuel tank can be a problem on weekend off road excurions.

As if even .001% of people who buy these things go off road. Might scratch it. Or get some pebbles stuck in the treads. Tsk tsk.

I know sarnali wants one to haul his Bandit to Daytona!

The "Hardbody" series replacements, I believe. And more like the "Mazda Vs. Ford Ranger", or the "Mitsubishi Vs. Dodge Dakota".

It's funny, the reviews I've read on these, the "Japanese" truck ALWAYS gets higher marks in every category.

Why do you s'pose that is?

Great!- Squids on 4 wheels. Yep- that's the ticket.
