    I know there's the DRZ400SM...but singles just don't do it for me. I'm all about the inline twins, especially the oldschool ones that were perfectly balanced and last forever. (Or at least a few hundred thousand miles, whichever comes first)



    All we need is



    350cc ~ 30-40 HP. Enough to work with without pushing the engine to its limits and quickly wearing it out. Nice tall overdrive gear for the highway to further prevent excess engine wear.



    Nice big front disk



    Good tractable tires



    Weigh no more than 300-320 pounds



    Top notch traction. Top notch braking. Beautiful agile handling. Rock-solid reliability. Adequate power to work with even in the mountains. THE BEST TWISTED MOUNTAIN ROAD BIKE IN THE WORLD!



    I wish I was mechanically inclined enough to just make a custom build myself, but I'm just a big dummy. So instead, I have to sit here and bitch hoping someone makes one.

    LOL IMO you kind of just described the DRZ, aside from it being a single, I'd say it pretty much fits your description above... That said, it would be nice to see some more SM's, or maybe a RELIABLE, Japanese version of Aprilia's totally badass SXV 5.5 V-twin beastmoto. A reliable Japanese, 65 horsepower, 300 pound, six speed, fuel injected V-twin supermoto. I must admit that would be nice. That being said, I'm pretty darn happy with the DRZ, especially if you consider price, reliability, long and stable production run, possible modifications, etc. I think it's a fantastic package.
    KJ, just KJ, ok.

    That 390 Duke does look like it'd be a blast, too.
