    I say don't worry .
    I bought one of the last xr400r because Mr Honda said no more. Well!
    1 year later the Xr400m Motard version arrived.

    Bring on the Ct110M it will be faster:D

    when new 2 finger braking is ok
    then something happens to brakes
    then something grows
    then brakes no longer matter

    Posties don't use the front brake. :D

    It's all rear brake overlapped with throttle for smooth progression between the boxes.

    Replace rear pads, hone the score marks out of the rear drums.

    Fronts are "sealed for life", heck, they don't even require adjustment! :rofl

    Bollocks I wear the front out first , been a postie over 22 yrs. Since when is a decent brake unnecessary, and if they can put disc's on all sorts of scooters etc in SE asia y not here, would be easier on the arm and wrist muscles and cheaper to produce

    All will revealed in due course
    or maybe i'll do a harold holt


    maybe the Asians couldn't work out how to put the handbrake on discs
    you would know how much it sucks having no handbrake out there
    plenty of posties wear out the rears regularly
    some posties need there chain adjusted almost daily ,don't know what they are doing
    maybe shaft drive for em
    Gavo what things can you see on that bike that might not be no good for a delivery bike?

    remember the humble ct110 morphed into a usable post beast unlike the old the 2 smoke scooter they tried for a little while
    I don't think they are in pre poduction yet:evil

    i wouldn't mind grabbing one and taking the frame, swingarm,motor and add better rear shocks ,wheels and decent front end and go for a blast.haven't got and weights yet but i reckon they are plenty light

    We won't have to check chain tension with that silly gauge anymore:lol3
    Plenty of bikes cope without a hand brake or just leave it in gear, cause your supposed to take the key when u leave it also with a disc brake, again no silly gauge to check free play

    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
    I'll tell ya tommorrow!

    Now we're talkin'. Constant chain adjustment, followed by winding in the rear brake.
    Give it the shaft drive off a 50cc mini bike, along with some disc brakes!

    Add in EFI for more consistent fueling, economy and power.
    Double the fuel capacity to reduce frequency of embarassingly small and inconvenient refuels.

    Whoever they are, they sound incredibly skillful and attractive, I've heard that the chain can stretch more just by being in the presence of awesomness...:gdog
