SWEET. . . .
Interesting. I particularly liked the "Comparison" page. Reminds me of one of those "$19.95 but wait" TV commercials. Remember the guy all tangled up in weed whacker line being saved by the plastic blades (only $19.95) that replace the line? Apparently factory built dual sports are all crap and this bike is the answer. Or maybe not? They seem to think so.

I saw three of them at the Laguna Seca Moto GP a few years back. Looked well done with good detail.

No rides were offered so I can't comment on that aspect of the bike.

Nice.
But I would still take a KTM over it. For one thing, ten grand is too much for a dirtbike, sixteen is just ridiculous. And why is it 100lbs heavier than everything else? Must be the motor and a frame heavy duty enough to handle it. Four hundred pounds offroad is just no fun. I would be lucky to even be able to pick it up if I dropped it. My KTM is 235lbs and it's heavy if it's on it's side. Now if you were a burly guy, 6'-2" 275lbs of muscle, no problem.

Reminds me of those ICON jeeps and 'cruisers - nice but stupid expensive.
