Interesting. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it does appear to be a beast to my eyes as well. Cumbersome looking engine, with forward facing exhaust doesn't appeal. Wonder if it sounds like a Ford F250?
However, there seem to be some potentially interesting specs. Three cylinders, continuously variable transmission, not too outrageous dry weight, something over 55 mpg if my conversion is correct, and enough headlights to wilt bushes at 50 meters. But is is bulky-looking and I imagine I'd need a ladder to climb into the saddle!
Then there's the price. At today's exchange rate the regular price of 18,750 Euros converts to $25,500. The "special price" of 16,999 Euros equates to $23,118. I could buy a brand new Versys and a LOT of fuel for that sum.
I almost forgot - Go Vols!
