As I am not a resident of India or China, I have no interest in this bike.

If I were living in India I'd be drooling over this thing, but as it stands I'm with 3dcycle: I just cant bring myself to like it. It's just... wrong somehow.

You guys clearly missed the intent of their market - all the Ruckus emo younglings are growing up. They need a bigger version for them to take over.

Makes perfect sense, lol.

Don't know about other parts of the country but California, WA, and Hawaii has a massive Ruckus following. I think you're getting at something even if you were joking. Although I thought that was what the Honda mini-motard was for, a stepping stone without fully going into a full size moto.

I would love to own a URAL with a sidecar one day. Those things are cool

Yeah me too. But they have obvious issues. Ural has been equipped with EFI only a year or two. On earlier models is was standard procedure to scrap the electrical system and power the ignition by a boat battery in the back of the hack. I would also worry about parts availability being affected by a deteriorating relationship with Russia. I wish somebody else would build one. Polaris, for example could easily build a 2wd dual sport sidecar rig right from their parts bin.

Apart from a few models (which I really like), I have to say that out of the big 4 Jap brands, Honda's styling is the worst. Same with their cars.
