maybe 690 for you?i

So according to your logic every bike that has less power than a 990 is "dumbed down"? That must be why the open classes in off road races are all won by 990s.... Oh wait, they aren't.

If you really don't get it, many people would gladly trade some of those horses for a lighter bike that will handle better off road, use less fuel, be easier to pick up, etc. There is no replacement for displacement when you are going in a straight line, but for turning, jumping and braking I couldn't give a shit whether I had 20-30 horses less if it could loose 100 lbs.[/QUOTE]

I think mother Orange would say if the 990 too street and heavy, here is a 690 that should meet your needs. Maybe 750 cc dirt bike is possible, but the market isn't there. You could always bore a Dr out, that would get you to 705 cc or so.
