According the specifications at Honda's web site, this bike has a curb weight of 330 lbs! She's quite the fat lady being only 26 lbs less than the 650L.

Here's something that might give you a chuckle, Honda Innovation!

Wow, that weight makes it lighter than any of the KTM 4-strokes, except the Freeride 350. Even lighter than any of the Japanese over-250cc 4-strokes.

I'll take 2

Yes! A seat! What an innovation.

So, with this thing having a 6 speed gearbox, does anyone have horsepower numbers yet? I'd also be curious to see if it could keep up with Yamahas WR250r at speeds over 70mph without wringing its neck.

As Jon said, prices here are inflated quite a bit. We refer to that as the "lucky you live Hawaii" fee. If you can get a deal there or already have a bike, shipping it with your household goods is the way to go.

When you get here and find out how much it rains, you can likely sell it for a profit .

22.8 HP. Sounds about right, I guesstimated about 25.

My bike is in

I just got the call. The bike is in early. The dealer got two of them. I'm going to call back tomorrow and put a deposit on it. I'll drive up Tuesday, if I can get the time off and pick it up. Small, unmarked bills are what dealers like? Right?

When was your promise date? Mine is the 15th and I'm in PA. I'm assuming they're coming in from the ports in LA and will make their way across country. So I figure maybe i'll get lucky and have mine early next week?
