I won't jump the bike, and to be honest doubt I'll so much as do a wheelie (I pulled several withthe bike from new while IW as trying to learn how to ride.. but haven't been able to figure it out since!!).
I'd be pretty happy to have this as a naked, long-suspension bike with street tires. Something akin to the KTM Duke, I think?
Its only going to be long-suspension in the front. With the versys shock or r1 sho
ck its around 6" to 61/2".
I have a r1 shock, xr forks 41 mm, and SM motech motor guards if interested pm me.
