New British 450 dual sport - CCM motorcycles

Has anyone heard of CCM motorcycles from Britian. The GP450 looks pretty slick. Fuel injected, aluminum frame, Marzocchi front suspension, Brembo brakes, and all the options anyone would be interested in. It would make it pretty easy to order a "complete adventure bike", straight from the factory.

I know they have someone bringing them into Canada. It'd be pretty sweet if this thing catches on and makes the Japanese companies do a double-take. Maybe we'd start to see a few more legitimate dual sport bikes from the big companies.

According to this they're only putting out 400 per year. That's kinda too bad.

There's a pretty long thread already going here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=857243

About a year ago, I bought a '95 CCM C25 350 project bike for $750. Has the full Uptite Racing performance "kit" and a 90 mm bore so it's effectively a 450. It will eventually be put back into action as one of my dual-sport mounts. About as close to the GP450 as I'll ever get.

Did a quick search, didn't find that thread. Thanks for letting me know.
