Would it be a bad idea to supermoto an RMX450z?

I've been considering a Suzuki RM450z as a platform for a supermoto but can't find much information about anyone doing it previously.

Is that a good place to put the rifle? I mean what happens when you need to fill up the tank? Anyone could steal it. Perhaps lock it to the subframe.

What dirt bike style motards are available these days?

I was looking for the Husky SMR 511 but it seems they don't make them anymore. Besides the DRZ400 are there any dirt bike style motards on the market these days?

What are you comparing it to? I think that's pretty good, provided it's at the rear wheel. The 690 enduro R is 66 at the crank so probably not much more than this.

It depends what you want it for. For long trips the 660 will be a better bike. To ride local trails and not have to trailer your bike there then the WR250R is better.

I agree, I've ridden with one before and it really can. That said, it's nowhere near as durable as the WR250R. The 610 had all sorts of issues.
