An upgrade from the Helix to an Adventure scooter

Wow. Honda went nutz with this one. A 750 CC Adventure step through multi purpose scooter. Sorta looks awesome, but I will stick with my "new" 2005 BMW R 1200 GS adventure bike.

The article's author seems to think, the main market will be Europe and Asia, but The Western America's market is growing big time. Honda does not make mistakes. As of today their is no pricing, but I would expect it to be steep. Did you watch the video?

This is one of those concept projects that actually will come to the marketplace. Burgmans beware.

I did watch the video. It looks like a lot of fun, but I'm not sure if a market exists for it. We will see!
