I went down and looked at one and sat on it. It is not factory rated for my 240 pounds plus gear and cargo. I would feel ok with it on the road, But I have scooters for the road. I was looking at the K-Pipe as more of a dirt road bike. I decided it might not hold up on dirt roads with all that weight on it. I think the CT90 and CT110 would be better for that. But they have a much more cramped riding position and tube type tires. I think the K-Pipe would be a really fun ride on the street. It has a very comfortable riding position, at least for me. Being a 2017, I'd check to see if the shift pattern has been updated. Even the 2019 has neutral at the bottom. I think the first ones had a completely reversed pattern. There are a couple of great video reviews on YouTube on them by a guy named Dodge Rider. He just bought one and intends to modify it.
