...and detune it so that SUVs full of armed guys can keep up.

good point. but when its detuned, how are you going to launch it?



How about straping a JATO pack to it.

I wouldn't worry about that. Suzuki seems to have its corporate head on straight re: their DS lineup.



Between DRZ400, DR650 and Vstrom they have their bases covered, and the 650 sits perfectly in the middle. I'd like to see higher end longer travel susp. on it though.

I'll get one of those Hollywood Special Editions that can jump canyons, but can't outrun a Land Rover. You know. Those bikes that look like 4-strokes but sound like 2-strokes. Or like those special Ducati 916s in "Fled" that couldn't outrun a faarken Cadillac. Or those bikes where the 9mm bullets just turn into sparks when they hit...... a neccessity in LA.



Where does Hollywood get those bikes?

I think they are custom made by west coast choppers in a secret location.

Nope. Just a typo. You'll have to thank Honda for any apparent cleverness in my writing.

I think this is a great bike. Cast in the imperfect mold of compromise, it conquers neither street nor dirt with any real aplomb, but somehow manages to do both.



It reminds me of the first XL600S Honda that came out in 1983 (albeit water cooled).



In the hands of a good rider, this Yamaha could be a terror. .



Long live foo-foo bikes! Thanks Yossef.

Sheesh, a roughly 300 lb., 70 ish HP sportbike would be insanely fun. They'll probably ban it from being imported since it will be like a combined hit of crack and heroin and speed.
