  5. If Honda re-released the transalp 600 now...would you buy one??

    I was thinking about how there just isn't an equivalent to the TA 600 in todays marketplace. It's all either 250cc or 750cc bikes. The 700 translp is just plain ugly. I think the 600 transalp is still the best looking one, a real design classic. If Honda re-released the 600, everything exactly...
