I was riding at Richloam Saturday with Denny, the local Honda Rep, he said dealers are getting lots of calls about it. I'm thinking about selling the scooter and getting one of these. Looks like a great entry level bike and should be cheep to operate and insure.

Put my deposit down today, delivery expected in August. The stunt guy who did the Honda vid is an Internet friend of mine (vertical Joe,) he says its a blast to ride and he bought one.

What are they going to be selling for Jack? The aftermarket accesories should be awesome for this little bike

$2999. They've been available in Asia for a year and some accessories are available. British customers just getting them now, release date in US is August. I'm selling my Aprilia scooter to make room. I think this will end up being a cult bike. The price point is very competitive ...... I'm gonna have some new, young, friends. LOL

Jack,
I like it....for the $ it should sell as the Chinese Scooters are junk in the long run. So for a few $ more you get Honda quality. The biggest market place gets the bike last?...lol.
I would love one, just have no idea where I would ride it. I don't ride my Tiger around the neigborhood , only on trips ...tired of dodging texting drivers...

Here it is! Had it about a week now and racked up 250 miles. Seat is hard like a KTM and will probably be the first upgrade. Suspension is good by mini bike standards but will probably be the second mod (I've already upgraded tires.). It's no powerhouse but I can get 60 MPH and I'm getting an honest 110 MPG! But the best thing: it's fun to ride.
