I ran up on an article about this bike. I didn't even know it existed, but is somewhat popular in Europe. Looks kinda like the Strom. Has a Superhawk motor. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

This ride report is a few years old but it will give you a little more insight.

Thanks Mike, I want one. Guess I'll have to move.

If you get one of those please sell me your Hurricane. I promise it will have a good home.

Can't find anything about it on the Honda Website - local stealership doesn't know anything about it either.

Yeah, it's not being imported as of yet. Looks like the newer one has fuel injection and some other upgrades. And Mike.....stay away from my Hurricane.

I looked at the V-Strom pretty closely as a commuter bike, but I would much rather have a Honda. I hope we hear more about this one in the future! I'll be asking for forgiveness from the wifey for sure!
