Several Hondas owned, but the only one problematic was an '82 or '83 CB650 with electrical/charging issues that I never was able to sort out. I was not the only one.

I would give my left testicle (it's admittedly an old one) to have a red Motus motorcycle. I love the idea of an American sport tourer with a Baby Block V4 and lots of premium parts.

Although we have to wait a while. the Yamaha XTZ700 (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=991292) (possible Baby Tenere) might represent a viable third choice.

Thanks, Louis. That's exactly what I needed to know. I don't mind pulling back the sleeve to top off, but not having to do that for the entire tank is going to be a huge improvement.

Assuming this is a 50-state bike in the U.S. (unconfirmed by me), why would the SR400 meet CARB (California Air Resources Board) requirements while Suzuki's TU250X does not? Both have fuel injection.

Your Honda CB500 idea is solid. When others mention the Suzuki GS500, they are right, but the CB500 available now is what the GS500 was when it was being sold. I would love to have one myself.
