Really??? 240?
I mean - I do not see point in comparing to DR, but 240 for naked bike?

Is it wet or dry?

240 ready to ride according to the Honda Montessa site. Whether that means full tank (21.5lt) or not..

Only tempting bit, is knowing how great the engine is! Still prefer my VFR though

21.5 liter petrol weights just 15.85 kg.

That is one heavy bike. Heavier than almost anything in this class.
E.g. no-brainer parts bin bike. Some time ago Honda was capable of making classics of success parts bin bikes (Hornet 600 for example). Pity that skill faded.

It's more than tempting.
I'd buy one, and I NEVER buy new. Ever.

If Honda gave the greenlight on the US, I'd be putting down a deposit tomorrow.

Easy there, you better wait to see the price

It's probably not coming, and if it does, it will not be cheap.

Yeah, I just get so excited at the possibilities of this, my TIG welder, and a bunch of alloy.

The possibilities are enticing. The $$ are not.

Wait, are not all bikes required to have the same smog equipment?
