Following pictures that seem familiar I get 2,700,000 and I bet that's not out the door. What's that, US$35,000 these days?

Yes we do pay a premium (especially on parts!) for non-J bikes...

I'm still riding kiddie bikes - mine cost 800,000 yen to get me on the road. But then, I don't need flashing blue lights and stereo systems to enjoy my rides ;)

must be a lot of import duties charged. That bike in the states is 20 to 22 thousand usd
