I was just saying to Jackie yesterday, as a Street Triple passed us, that it was all the bike most people could ever need; fast (enough), nimble, light and sublime handling.  The only drawbacks being a lack of range capability because there's zero weather/wind protection or any load -carrying.

This seems to knock that one on the head so what's not to like?  It looks like a lighter version of the Tiger Sport, us older ones are looking for something around 100bhp but don't necessarily want a full-on off-roader and might just think this is a good idea.  If they can do a restriction kit to appeal to those not yet on a full licence then it could be a goer.  :^_^

I used to ride my STripple up to Thailand from Singapore over a long weekend (3k kms) well loaded and think to myself, if it just had ergos a bit closer to my Roadie and a bit more weather protection than the vestigial fly screen  :nod

Them along came the 800 XC  :m
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint
