Most street bikes have very little travel/shock stroke so they can be made very easily to work well

Twin shocks are so much easier to remove/service and allow balanced airboxes on some motor architectures

You might want to ask some of the folks in Orange Crush, they might know better than me.

I would think that at a minimum there would have to be possible revalving or different springs in the forks or rear shock since the bike is setup for the street.

I was out at steeles the other day looking for parts for a friends bike. When i was there I saw a bike very similar to this. If it is the same bike then it looks damn fine in person. If i had enough money (And balls) id sure get it.

The SM is a fun bike, but the cost to make it comparable to an SE would be prohibitive... Far cheaper to just find an SE in the first place.

You could but some custom-cut tires on the 17" wheels to give you better off-road traction in true 'supermoto' fashion...

Amen, brother. I see all these ads for uber-expensive bikes and the sellers can't even be bothered to take and post decent pix.
