I think you guys are being a little harsh. No, I wouldn't want one either, but I'm sure somebody out there will think it's cool.

execution is.. Well.. Odd.
Too much time with the marketing department and the consumer committee /
market research analysis..
Aka - Marketing run amuck!.

Agreed, this 600+ lb "supper scooter" @ $15k is not a great show case
as it tries to be everything to everyone and is nothing to anyone!. IMHO

Personally, I am not ready to give up my clutch and manual transmission, too
much fun!.. But.. Not that long ago I would have scoffed at ABS on bikes,
with this new generation of ABS from the likes of Honda (CBR1000RR for

While I would not buy it, I would not poke too much fun at someone that
does, as they obvious had more money than me!.. ;-D
