    If they release it here, I'm very likely to pick it up. I've been shopping around and couldn't really find what I like(basically something like a cross between a 600 "street fighter" and a motard). I was about to pick up a used bike and just mod it but this seems to fit the bill PERFECTLY! Lightweight, pretty cheap, and has high MPG potential...something I can use to go to work and school yet is still fun to ride.

    You could always get an older speed triple.

    I love the concept. I just wish it didn't look thrown together. It does come in quite a bit cheaper than the bikes it competes with though. For me, the Speed Triple is the one to get.

    I've honestly have not looked into them since not much people around here ride them, I'm close to a dealership but I've seen way more Yamaha dealers so if reliability becomes a concern, repairs for the Yamaha seems easier.
