it does look like it! it would look perfect on my r90/6 but no cash for custom seats, i thought maybe its some universal seat.

just put a set on my 640A hoping to ride the trans Labrador Highway on them, work seems to be getting in the way yet again...sigh. So no real tie on them, hoping for good things

I really like the look of the bikes without side panels. This one, with the battery under the transmission, looks even better. Not to mention the controls and bar, and a dozen other things.

Yeah, I like it.

Clean, simple, functional. That's the nicest scrambler I've seen yet.

Now I want to turn my R90 into that.

I like the turned down end caps for the exhausts for soft bag use. Indicators and a speedo would be nice, but otherwise I’d leave that bike absolutely as-is. OK, maybe fork gaiters.

Let the hunting for a set commence :)

*edit: New triple tree with bearings for $20...done. Time to hunt the forks.

Jst FYI, the DRZ400 uses forks that look the same ( I believe a bit burlier though). It is much more common to find than the 650, and the lower steering bearing drops right into an Airhead frame

It's true ... but they are long. Real long ... It takes some fiddling to get them to look right ... and even then ...
