just scanned LA CL for 990's. Many Super Dukes, a few Adventures, and a couple SM's... given the love for the rare SE, would not a SM be a good facsimile? One model had spoked wheels as I remember.

Of course.

I'm pretty interested in the FZ-07 too, but apparently not enough to buy one for new OTD.

Whether yamaha makes a lite or a real one I'm interested.

you know the TRUTH!

My wife learned to ride offroad on an XR200L. Her first streetbike was a SYM Wolf, it did the job. She has a Ninja 250 now, and that may be it for the foreseeable future.

I think the bars are somewhat isolated by rubber bushings - I noticed the bar does move a little when pulled on - I imagine if you don't like the feel you can make it solid with a little work.

If ridden in a certain way maybe. Ridden normally you can count on low 60's, not bad but not unique.
