Well, I won't say Honda didn't outdo Yamaha until I see the price, weight, and fuel capacity. Its conceivable that it ends up costing somewhere around the current CRF230L's $4999 (which is beyond absurd for that bike) and the CBR250R's $3999 there's a good chance of it selling really really well. Also, very interesting to see both KTM and Honda playing in the small dual sport market along with Yamaha and Kawasaki. Maybe this means a new DRZ400S or DR sub 650 is coming soon too?
