That is one of the most beautiful bikes I've ever seen. I would be willing to pay a pretty penny for it, based on it's looks alone. It actually looks like a MOTORCYCLE, and would be 10 times more reliable than a Royal Enfield. Would probably seriously out perform one too. And for some reason REs are selling. It's impossible to find a discount on one, even though they are seriously overpriced for their poor quality.

Unfortunately too many people do not appreciate something like this for it to ever be profitable, so Yamaha is not likely to bring it here. While Honda's new CB1100 looks great, I would like it a lot more if it looked like this. Or the 1969 CB750. If it did, I'd be down at the credit union looking for a loan.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
