Dakar Dual Sport 450

Hi Guys,

If a manufacturer produced a Fi 450 based dual sport bike based loosely on the present crop of Dakar bikes and bearing in mind the need to tone the specification for tarmac use and longevity would you buy one and what would be your parameters?

Gas Gas was supposed to import this http://www.bikeexif.com/gas-gas-ec-450-desert back in 2010. They didn't of course. They probably would have sold quite a few of them.
