    Of course it doesn't need to be a thumper to be a supermoto.

    Im huge a believer in the fun of Sumo. I have taken the SoCal supermoto class about a half dozen times and I learn new things each time.

    Best $250 you will ever spend.

    It's SO much fun!!

    they only have DRZ's so it's all about how much you can get out of ~19 hp

    Up. And to the right.
    Is there a reason why such small tires? They just never looked right to me. The proportions are all off. :lol2

    The 17" tires allows full use of sport bike tires. As well as the smaller front improves the bike's agility and handling on the street. Looks a bit goofy, but it works well.

    I love the supermotos. I have a yamaha wr250x, which is fun, but down on power. I would love to pick up a new husqvarna 701 (currently debating between that and an aprilia 1100 tuono). I'm at my bike limit, so my KTM rc8r is going to have to go to bring in another bike, so I'm trying to sort out what would work better as a part time track, around town and general hooliganism bike.

    @Achtung and others - thanks for the inspiration!

    I LOVE tards!

    Yeah, I'm thinking hard about a Husky 701 or a KTM 500 EXC conversion.

    Soooo much fun!

    No finished pics of mine yet. It's currently getting the "suspension treatment" in preparation for a track day.

    I think the beauty of a Supermoto is being able to hang with sport bikes in the curves and then in less than an hour conversion be able to ride single track. I'm digging it.

    I've had a few. The most fun on two wheels. IMHO.

    That video really rules @Revolve .

    I've been drooling over those 701 Huskies since I first read about them. 70 hp 320 lbs. drool.

    As great as the 701 and 690 are, I don't feel like either would be a significant upgrade over my XR.

    You know what I actually haven't made one for that DRZ. It's an S model converted to SM that I've kept the S wheels for off-road use. No major mods yet just the basic stuff. It currently weighs 319lbs with a Clarke 3.9 tank and rad/handlebar guards. Planning to do a big bore/full exhaust over the winter.

    Those 701 Huskys look sweet but I'm not buying one until I up my life insurance policy :lol3. I get into enough trouble with 30hp as it is.
