    if only it were to be available in the US... but sadly, it's apparently not.
    also, i'm too cheap to buy a new bike, anyway :D

    otherwise, it's rad.

    One could only assume it would be because it doesn't have a combustion chamber like a normal dirt bike.

    It has a trials style combustion chamber.

    It's just a pipe for a moderate state of tune.

    Yeah,a long head pipe followed by a shallow divergent cone and long small diameter belly is definitely a low RPM tune. It also has a resonance chamber.

    What makes you think it's street-legal? I see a headlight, but no mirrors, or turn signals. It looks like a trail bike, to me.

    Honda must have heard you except for the step through part.

    Coming soon to a Honda dealer near you.
