Myself something that get 80 MPG. Does at 65 MPH all day with a little left over to pass with. It would have a roof that can fold up into place for rain. ( it's rains all to much in BC canada) A windshield with a wiper on it because of that rain. Nothing like being blinded in storm and you can't see the dam road . Something that fits my tall size. Engine that is good for at least 15 years of use . Lets say 80 ooo miles. I ve put at least 10 000 miles on my helix in the last year. Lost of storage space so lets say at least 60 L worth. Since we are talking about perfect lets shot of something that can manage a forest road withing out getting a holes in the engine from rocks.

I ve also thougth this one was cool . from this old thread I posted . http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=642965

Oh and I forgot to add a bigger gas tank. I'd like to hit 300 miles before I need to start looking for a gas station.

Basically a Honda Helix, with 14" rims, a 350cc horizontally-opposed watercooled injected twin, lose the footbrake and add rear hydraulic disc, and a back rest. I'd be in heaven.

I'm gonna say that the Honda NC700 Integra seems like something I'd
end up describing.

That or the Burgman 650.

Messing around with standard CVTs is getting on my nerves, it's always
a compromise, even if I got good results with the malossi and dr pulley
stuff, it's still not "there".

But let's have a go anyways:

1) At least 15" up front, and 14" wheel at the rear
2) At least 50l of storage (bye bye Integra)
3) Any kind of electronic CVT or dual clutch setup
4) Legs up front
5) 100% air protection
6) At least 40hp, 50hp+ would be nice.

I had a brand new set in my parts hoard that I sold recently . They were a good idea but not large enough to be effective .
This is why I use the BR for doing all my around town errand running and that's about it . Around town it can't be beat ,
but over 50mph not so much . Unfortunately at higher speeds it gets abusive , but like I said , it is what it is .

KYMCO GT 300i

Howdy,

Yours truly has a Honda Sh150i that really covers the bases, but is lacking for slightly fatter tires and a bit more power. Kymco's GT 300i comes about as close to ideal as can currently be found. If only Honda made the Sh300i in Asia to keep the costs down..

I'd buy one today.
I'd go along with this, but maybe with the new 350 engine instead....and also wish for a bit better suspension.
