Is it wierd to see a bike with the chain on the right? I've never seen one in person. I would also think left side kick would be strange(though this may be e-start?). It's a wicked lookin bike though! Seems like they like the look of the new KTM sidepanels.

Are the Japanese the only ones capable of engineering a front fender that doesn't need a brace?

With BMW, Aprilia, and now Benelli there are going to be a bunch of cool alternatives if you are looking for a 450.

formerly the same company as that which makes the firearms, but the motorcycle part was split off and is owned by the Chinese Group Qianjiang . . .

Imagine the laughs if it breaks or you come in last...... j/k

Very interesting bike - I think it's cool to be different too. I too wonder how much it will cost......is it EFI?
