Yeah it does

I wonder who'll first adapt an XR50 motor to it...

Re: Anybody Else Seen This Cool New Honda?

The seat looks terrible, but I am interested to see how the rear shock performs. It is a pretty radical design for this market. I am not so keen on the 7-speed internal transmission, but I am guessing that it'll be a DH beast...

Re: Anybody Else Seen This Cool New Honda?

I know they have been trying to get into the market for about 3 yrs now, it looks like they are 'over-designing' it a little. That seat is horrible, and I am not so sure about the 'backbone' structure of the seat tube.

Re: Anybody Else Seen This Cool New Honda?

From the looks of the forks, it looks like a downhiller for sure. And Jay, that seat looks like it is designed for better on/off transition - how many times have you snagged your lycra (not your nads, per se) on the front of your mtn. bike seat? Maybe, on both counts
