I don't think either of those are something a small DS bike needs. Especially an affordable one. I could have put an XR250R fork on the XL200R and I would have been completely satisfied with the front end and probally not added more than 5lbs. I would have put spacers in the fork to keep the bike level. The short seat height was something else that was nice.

Same here.
Crusier riders dress like pirates, sport bike riders dress like Power Rangers and adventure riders dress like Starship Troopers. Dual sport riders are just fashion disasters.
