    I really like the looks of the Retro version. Too bad they're so small. At 6' 1", I found them very cramped

    Unless your legs are very long, raising the seat is all that's needed.
    Like my Kawasaki seat installation:

    Whatever happened to the no hack models? The Wolf? Better than an Enfield back when.

    Oh dear, we will never hear the end of them now. They will become collectable and increase in value. Nyet!

    Over here at least, they only had Type Approval and Euro emission reg documents for combos.
    Hence,they stopped the solo models.

    Anyone who wants a solo just needs to find a Retro or M70 and unbolt the 'car.
    All the solo-specific parts seem to be available.

    I've motored around town without the 'car on my Retro just to see what happens.
    Torque was phenomenal. Brakes were first class. Suspension was--MIA. Cornering sucked amazingly.

    I survived but didn't enjoy it.
