    While interesting, it's unclear to me the US or U.K. needs or even wants a heavy single cylinder road bike. Unlike European markets, we don't have a "Learner" license tier which this would be targeted at so most new riders here in the US go straight to 500-600cc twins/fours from the moment they get their endorsement.

    I wish them well in their endeavor but I doubt they will see much success here in the US.......

    With the Jawa small cc bikes Sock Monkey is spot on. The BSA line would sell. A BSA old school scrambler updated with a real suspension would have my interest.

    This, which is a Hornet and is a twin cylinder bike. Use a Kawi 650 Twin motor with minimal other changes. Left side shift, electric start... and roost.
    They say 2018? I say 2020 if ever. Is India the new China?
