    same hp/tq.... maybe? lighter. The only thing I see is TFT dash, which needed an update, and different headlight assy.

    No doubt an "improved" price, too.

    The pictures summed it up for me. Like...this is the way I'll be riding the bike, drifting through the corners...probably with a helicopter overhead and cars with blue lights in pursuit.




    Who seriously does this? Or I should rephrase that...who does this when they are paying for the tires themselves?



    Yup, the pictures summed it up for me. An expensive toy that makes me want to yawn.

    I love the fact that it has a "FlexFrame".

    Kind of reminds me of the Flexi Flyer that I used to have during the 1950's. It was like a wooden snow sled with small wheels for riding on pavement. It used rotating handlebars with metal tabs that pressed against the front solid tires to (sort of) stop. Now there was a dangerous device, especially when ridden on the street as most were. I wonder how many children were killed before that thing was withdrawn from the toy market?
