I don't think CCM will have a problem selling this bike at this price, they are not a mass produced bike.
CCM probably didn't have a hole lot of choices on what engine to use, I doubt any manufacturer would supply them with current production motors and if they build their own the cost would be high and we would be writing about this unproven engine for an adventure bike.
I have no history with this engine so can't speak to it's robustness but I like that it's BMW based so parts should be easy to obtain.
I'm thinking of replacing my current bike in the near future and this bike is on my short list.
Trade my DL1000 on a new KTM 1190 or keep my DL and add a CCM? Hard choice to make my DL is fully setup for me and is in perfect condition and will last for many more years, the CCM is perfect for where I live and would give me a new area of off road adventure riding to explore.
The KTM is a wet dream to ride, not an easy choice to make.

Two bikes are better than one, especially since these two make a nice complement!

That's what I'm thinking.

I think this is a good bike. I think it is a true adventure bike. Compared to say the KTM 350 and 500 (and a lot of others) which are dirt bikes with signal lights this bike can carry luggage. How can you have an adventure with out luggage? Most of the world uses smaller displacement bikes, except us in North America and Europe. Much easier to pick up a smaller bike and manage it in bad going. I'm glad CCM has developed this bike and I hope they sell lots of them. I'm actually trying to make my Honda XR400R similar to this concept since I own the bike already.

Do you think they'll build anything to the CCM's specification? If a Japanese manufacturer were to create anything close to this, it'll come in at a similar price for a similar spec. This is a low production, high quality bike.

Just stumbled on this thread. Some pics from the Edmonton show:



Grizzler on the CCM



Yours truly on the same bike. It is a sweet piece of kit...

Just two guys, shown to Grizzler's right. The two guys weren't from CCM, they were from the Canadian importer. The CCM was surrounded by scooters - this is the first motorcycle they have imported. You're probably not going to get a great warranty support experience, if that is a big issue for you.

They said that you could switch a plug to get more performance from the BMW engine - I asked if that would void the warranty like it did on the BMW; I didn't get a straight answer.

Price is almost always a deciding factor in everything, but I think in this case value is the real issue. From what I have seen this seems a good value. No bike can be all things to all people, but it sounds to me that many here are suggesting that the value is not there due to the size (engine displacement) of the bike. Is it wise to correlate size (engine or overall weight) with value? Isn't this the thinking that killed the North American luxury car back in the day (bigger and more has to be better)? For many in the ADV bike world less is more. From my own perspective of value in an ADV bike, the CCM seems to have that figured out pretty well. Time will tell.

You sure as hell didn't ask me. I'm the dude with blue shirt. Yes it does. Not sure who you asked as there are only two of us at the show and we tell people up front that it voids the warranty.
Obviously you didn't see the three other motorcycles in our booth, two of which we already imported.

Cheers

Nice bike. The 1100ml of oil in an "ADventure Bike" scares me. There was a straight answer when I asked about the power up and the warrantee. Warrantee VOID.

Nope, sorry, only saw the scooters. Unless you parked a Bimota, Motus or Vyrus beside the CCM, I probably would have missed it - I was so thrilled to see that bike after reading so much about it.

I wish you all the success in the world with it; as I said in my first post, it is a sweet bike and it's great to see it in Canada.
