I know there are a couple dirt oriented offerings and I'm familiar with the current crop of 650's but I'm thinking more along the lines of something in the 300-400cc range. Something like a baby Wee Strom.
I'm certainly not suggesting there should be, I'm more just curious as to why a bike like this would fail as a cross country mover.
Because in America, bigger is better. A $8000 300cc bike will not sell.

You may want to look at the dr650 , xt series, and tw. 35 years is a long time, are you sure you don't want a dirt bike, and run from the ranger one more time?
Yes, Android AND iphone GPS works without cellular data. Use offline maps and enjoy. (thanks drtbyk!)
