I may be too tall for this; BUT, I like it.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Not really suitable for touring (at least without a Vetter!Smile ), but perfect for what we locals call The Grotto bike (local coffee place we meet at on Sundays, so a smallish town bike would be more practical than say a Goldwing, GRiSO, Monster etc.).

EFI, kick and electric start, wire wheels, top speed at 90 (while I think that qualifies it for freeway use, it would have to be able to carry my arse up the big hill on I-17 and on to Flagstaff - steep grade and any head wind may be a deal killer).

Looks like a proper bike should too. Very Happy

Drum brake at the back...no thanks.
Not that you need lots of breaking power there but dropping the wheel for servicing rear brake nowadays is going backwards in my book.
The concept is cool though..
Lots of old school Guzzi guys would love to see a modern single 500cc. Be perfect in town.

Meh, not that big a deal. Granted a disc would be easier, but drums aren't that bad. But hey, we get to pick our poison.
