Victory Vision Tour I like. At least they got the guts to style a bagger that don't look like yet another Harley Clone.

I've read good things about the mana, surprisingly. Still wouldn't buy one though; it seems like it would be great if it was all you had to get around on. Thank my motorcycle is my toy.

Did they actually sell one? A hydraulically driven motorbike. Makes you wonder about Honda.

Didn't quite understand these also until I had the opportunity to ride one. They can be seriously fun, kinda like a snowmobile with wheels. Takes a lot of upper body movement to turn them even at speed-a lot of push/pull steering, and the things can toss you off if your not leaned into a turn. Would I own one at this stage in my life, no-but don't kid yourself they are definitely not an easy ride.

I know of one that got sold, only reason he bought it was because it was cheap and they made him a sweet deal.

Busa and ZX14 are purposely built machine - for going WAYYY faster than anybody ever need to go. But the bits and pieces are built to purpose.

The DN-01 is silly because it was doodled up by some bored Honda engineers on weekend after drinking too much sake. Hey, how about a windscreen that is only good for keeping wind off the rider's ? Great idea! What about a hydraulic piston pump with variable stroke for a transmission? Let's make it so complicated and use a name like "Human Friendly Transmission" so nobody has a clue how da heck is works? Genious! Ya, and let's use a small engine and heavy frame that the average passenger will overload the 324lbs load capacity. Marvelous!

MSRP? painted by Earl Sheib for $15,599. They'll buy it. It's a Honda.

There is a brand new one on Ebay for $8,999. Good freaking luck. Not when you can buy a new '12 NC700X for $6,399. That was probably designed by the same engineers, after they sobered up and got serious.
