ok lets try this with an actual message = ]
not sure if a 15 thousand dollar motorcycle is a good starter bike. I picture a cheap easy to ride 400-700 cc standard.The DN-01 with the auto tranny it is easier to ride but there are just certain people who are not meant to ride regardless of the motorcycle. I'm sure we all know at least one.
stylewise I think it's a sharp looking motorcycle. I did see one at the dealer and liked it but the price tag and the lack of thrill factor scream no way and did I mention it's around $15k. I could click off a dozen $15 or less MC's I'd rather have.
