The possibility of a sidecar (sorry, hack) version sounds interesting

Brutus

Looking to get one of these? You might have to go to Italy for one ...;



I am trying to find out pricing and more but this beast has some appeal ... It is being called a Moto SUV; 750cc, EFI ...

Should sell like cow pies

Looks like an old Cushman scooter from the 60s, on steroids.

I got the ad from Honda too.

Can't see this as much of sale in Italy. Well maybe at the farmer's market.

Or a pit scoot at the tractor pulls.

This thing could be the best thing for getting the jokes of the HD guys.

What problem is it solving?

Those tires would suck on pavement, as would the 45 horsepower.
That suspension, lack of power and weight would suck off road.

I guess if it cost less than KLR (yeah, right) people would buy it. Perhaps as a ranch bike, for people who don't want a quad or a Rokon?

I just don't see the application.
