You're kidding right? It was supposed to be a simple, light SPORTtourer:

Good if not thrilling motor - check.
Belt drive - check.
Great fuel economy - check.
Relatively light weight - check.
Relatively nimble handling - check.
Canbus electrical system - err, maybe.
F800S with the Europe-only lower fairing panels - check.

F800ST - err, no check.

F800GT - a smaller, fuller tourer version of a 1200, with more complexity to go wrong? and a higher price tag on a bike that was already too expensive for its class? - not only no, but hell no!

Where is the promised Husqvarna 900cc SPORT tourer???
1990 Honda NT-650 Hawk-GT
