I called my BMW salesman today to find out about his experience in Cali riding the new X bikes with Jimmy Lewis; and I brought up this 450 prototype. The opinion concensus in Cali was that the 450 would be street legal, ala Husky TE's, and KTM EXC's, but probably would not be available to the public till 09. Too bad. This is closer to being my ideal bike than the X Challenge is. These are interesting times to be in the market for a street legal off road bike. I would not be surprised to see the Japanese bike companys come up with something next year. How can they continue to ignore the likes of: Husky, KTM, BMW, Sherco, Gas Gas, Aprilla, and Beta?
