I like it. I imagine most owners will ditch the mirrors on day 1.

I think SYM was also coming out with something similar, called the wolf if I remember correctly.

Heres a pic:

Sweet bike but it needs to be a 250cc to really make it in our market. Could be a world wide best seller but not here. It needs to be able to do at least a 10 mile stint on the interstate with hills. I love it but its not on my list because of the lack of power, and Im not asking for much. Ive owned a SYM HD200 scooter and that was the most amazing 171cc's under a twist grip. It could do Interstate roads all day if needed. It hauled my 230 lbs loaded at 70 mph on the flats. I just hope SYM can become a strong seller in the USA, let's say this year and for the first time(If the Lance takeover is worth a shit). Carter Bros at there best before the fire were a pain in the ass in my opinion.

It will end up in mine too. I will be contacting them next week for a reservation. Are you taking a peek here Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha?

Suzuki has already a retro-styled small UJM, the TU250X.

both of those

They look like a cross between a 74 CB125 honda and a DT250 yamaha.
AND
That's a chopper?
Ha...to each his own.

I agree that the available bike models have strayed away from this kinda thing ever since marketing decided that we all (in the us) want a cruiser with a stepped seat and pull back handle bars.

the DT series is timeless uncluttered beauty......the CCW ACE reminds me of how my bikes looked back in the 70s.

nowadays, bikes are l;ike NASCAR......only the decals tell them apart.
