If you never want another woman to look at you in a sexual way ever again get the trike.

As for me, I'll stick with real bikes.

Yamaha 900 Diversion

I wanted one of these so bad.... but Y never brought it to the states. It looks ideal to me. Comfy ergos, shaft drive, 6+ gallons of gas, and air cooling. I know we often say "I would have bought one if...", but I really would have bought one if they had imported it.

I know a local bloke who had over 80.000 miles on his when I last spoke
with him, and that was at least 5 years ago.. he was accumulating 20k/year
on average.

The bike never let him down.

Even here they're VERY rare, but the 600cc version (especially the naked)
can be found rather easy.

Yamaha looks great but can't be that much different than an early model Bandit.

yep, I wanted one of those too, and almost bought one. I did a test ride and it seemed pretty buzzy to me. I bought a C10 instead. I guess these days the only bike that is comparable would be the GSX 1250FA.

Sorry? Shaft vs. Chain. 6+ gallons fuel vs. less than 5 gallons. Suspension and economy? I agree that they share the same "look", but that's about all.

Yep, one way they can sell it so cheap, no crash testing! It will be my winter vehicle if they actually start making it, even if I need a 3 wheel endorsement and wear a helmet! 84mpg!?!

I like it too for some reason. Wish they made one with a 250 motor, that may push me over the edge.

That;s my thoughts on the soon to be released Honda Grom. Looks like it could be a cool little run about/learner/short ass bike... if it was a 250...

I have similar thoughts about the Yamaha TW200.

Very cool bike. I just wish they made one with a motor that could sustain speeds that are safe for the American interstate system without destroying it.

And speaking of....
