It will be used as an 80% road/20% dirt-gravel dual sport. It's going to be a big, fat bike so the tight technical stuff or sand will be reserved for my CRF.what you going to use it for?
i canr see it being anygood on or off road sorry just my opinion
I'm guessing it will end up close to 450-475 pounds. The stock Hornet is 418 but the KTM suspension components are heavy duty and the frame steel I'm adding isn't light.Cool!
I thought the title was a typo!!
That looks very interesting indeed!!
What do you expect the dry weight to be?
And what sort of carbs/FI/gearing will you use and what kind of power delivery do you hope to get(ie top end/bottom end)?
Thanks, I'll kee them coming as I go.Mmmmmm that looks real interesting.
Look forward to the updates.:thumbleft:
None. As I thought of a name for the bike, the XR series is the only one that even comes close. Dual sport type bike with a four stroke engine that is not competion class = XR It's a big, well very big XR650R.Exactly which bits are XR?
Thanks.looks very interesting :thumbleft:
Exactly my intent. I love the BMW GS Adventure but I'm not a fan of BMW's engines or claimed durability issues as of late. I also like the KTM 990 Adventure but the "extra" maintenance a KTM suposedly needs didn't excite me. Honda's durability is legendary and I just love the power delivery of an inline four, especially one with a tad over 100hp!I reckon its the new Honda GS eating Super Trail Monster prototype getting a make over for production.
Bet it pulls great wheelies....
Maybe Mother Honda will see it and realize that they are missing a large segment of motorcycle sales. They make the Varadero but she's really overweight and the suspension isn't set up for any off road excursions.I think I want one!
Doubt it hey But looks fun if you have the knowledge and inclination to build a weird and wonderful bastardisation. Look forward to the end result:thumbright:Maybe Mother Honda will see it and realize that they are missing a large segment of motorcycle sales.
