    That bridge between the front and the engine area is becoming more like a motorbike...

    This is a Scooterbike

    I reckon there was never anything wrong with the CVT, however I guess having an automatically changed manual will give a more direct feel...?

    Really....this has to happen first, then arrive in Australia, then be a price worth going for.

    PS. you're all winners!

    everybody2:

    I reckon there was never anything wrong with the CVT,

    Obviously CVT works since we all use it on our scooters daily... but I have to say intuitively I never fully trusted or liked that system of belts, cones and pulleys... it just seems to me that cogs and gears are a more 'proper' way of transmitting power. So personally I would welcome an alternative in the form of double clutch system as it seems to provide all of the advantages of automatic transmission plus shifts faster than a human could manage for when the mood strikes. I see no downside!

    That bridge between the front and the engine area is becoming more like a motorbike...

    Yes, because a larger, heavier and faster machine requires stronger, less flexy chassis, and the best way to provide that is to bulk-up the area where the footwell would be. It is no accident that as scooters grow bigger their frames become more and more motorbike-like. Similar requirements lead to similar engineering solutions because the laws of physics are the same for scooters and motorbikes :)

    If I were running a motorbike company that wanted to release a 'family' of bikes based on the same engine, I would design all the bikes to use the same frame as well as the engine :).

    It almost looks as if they used a motorcycle frame, but moved the fuel tank somewhere else to make it more scooter like :).

    Isn't this technically a rehash of the DN-01 :)?

    That said, I would really really want an 'Akira' bike, and the DN-01 was the closest production bike to one :).

    Is coming to Australia. Hopefully in other colours, presser states just blue. Ive seen this in an all white, a black and even the matt scheme pictured looks good. The blue does not do it for me.

     Any guesses on the price in Australia Allen ?

    No idea, you would have to think Mid Teens. All in all, this package and style is growing on me, especially in the white.

    Tell me this doesn't look too bad.

    The first picture we've seen of this scooter was a bit underwhelming, but I'm warming up to it now... without the bags, and in white - it now looks pretty good to me. Wonder about the pricing though, something tells me this will not be cheap.

    Wasn't there a figure of $10K Euros mentioned somewhere? Or was that a guess?

    Re: New Honda 700 cc Scooter

    On second thought... wouldn't this scoot be as heavy, as expensive, as expensive to maintain, have similar handling, & have slightly more storage space to... the equivalent motorcycle version of the bike? :).
