all I nee is 150 miles out of a gas tank after that your are just carrying to much weight in fuel for the type of riding I like to do. Not to mention your range is always determined by the lowest common denominator.

I speak from experience.

I doubt fornication will get you anywhere. However, be able to ride like Curt Caselli or some other guys I'm watching every night on the NBC sports channel might get you a seat on one.

It looks like it only has 3 fuel tanks, so I can see how they would need more.


I need one like that, but can you build mine around the TRX 700 ATV motor?

Are my eyes deceiving me or have you just shown me there a 700cc, electric start version of the motor from the XR650R? How did I not know about this and why can't we buy it in a motorcycle package???

Nice to see a proper front fender on a rally bike.

Honda builds cars and generic bikes,not likely to be selling Rally Replicas anytime soon.

Maybe paint up one of their scooter framed NC700X models to look like a rally bike.

Rally Fairing.........Im not sure of the fascination with having a Rally fairing,all that weight up on top,all those parts to break.
Mainly a poseur thing I guess? I know rally guys need em for all their equipment/lights/etc.
Not that many actual rally guys checking in on this thread I wouldnt think.

Poseur - shit talkin' from someone who rides a DR

Whats a lot of stuff to break? It's Honda, not a KTM.

It'd be nice to have some wind protection to make the freeway blasts a little more comfortable.
