I think this bike appeared in the EICMA threads, so pardon the duplication, but I totally didn't understand that it was a CVT machine. Anyway, you can click the pic for a brief article about the bike in English.

I clicked this thread thinking it would be something less than exciting. However, this was a pleasant surprise.

Hawt. I'd give it all the love it deserves.

(Even better if it's lighter than the regular Mana)

Although a lot lighter than the GP800, I know which one I'd rather ride in the climate I live in. SoCal, OK, different choices, granted.

Perhaps that's the big reason scooters are 'normal' over here, they're the only smaller cc bikes that give very good weather protection. In most places in the world the weather is so similar from day to day, here we have three fierce weather systems competing all the time, so even a two-hour ahead forecast can be completely useless.

Imagine the Pirate Upholstery possibilities with a seat that long.

Seriously though, the way it's so utterly batsh!t crazy yet maintains a sense of dignity really gets me going. BRING IT!!!! Or rather, MAKE IT, then BRING IT!!!

I wish we had more small cc good weather protection bikes here. If that bike above as an engine 400cc or smaller - with the cvt - good deal.
