WTF! Looking at my Cycle Canada and Inside Motorcycle reviews of this thing.Haven't even seen one to tell the truth.But this thing fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.Am i getting old?(nvm)
I'd say many of us are too old for this bike to be targeted at us or appeal to us. You have to get in touch with your inner 20-something. Imagine yourself with a man bun and wearing designer jeans. You've got your 3/4 helmet with cool neo-retro paint scheme in hand. This thing probably screams cool to you.
Honestly I think the design was hampered from the start as they were using the CB300/500 motors. That engine was designed with a standard motorcycle in mind, so to try and get the seat low enough for a cruiser style motorcycle they had to work around it rather than with it.
NGL, I think it's an improvement. The original (new original, not original original) looks like an over engineered pocket bike or whatever you call those four speed "cruisers" that haunt the classifieds
