Maybe it's another Canada only small vehicle?

I think it's a non-use thing. Japan has a lot nicer stuff, to say the least,

I bought one of those new. Kenny Roberts RZ350 in Yellow and Black. What a bike. Mine was no where near stock. Ported, pipes, flat slide carbs, Diff. power valve. Alum frame,, yada yada. Also had a RZ 500. The 350 was more fun. 18 to 20 mpg if you where lucky.

I was only being facetious, but it appears it may in fact be a Honda Canada program:

http://www.hamiltonspectator.com/NAS...=1112101662835

The bike will sell for about $3500 CAN

Or bundled: training, riding gear & the motorcycle for $149 a month for 3 years.

It gets around 2.5 L/100 km (94 mpg US)

It only weighs 253 lbs dry!

EDIT: and 6-speed with FI. Nice! Has me thinking about motorcycling again...

Ive been wanting a Yamaha Warrior something awful. But there is know way i can make the forward controls work for me. Make my back hurt riding a bike like a recliner.

So it looks like Im going to aim for Strataliner.

I bet the that thing would be fun on a closed loop course. 50cc and 125cc GP is always fun to watch. I havent put more than 10 miles on a bike under 1 liter in 15 years....

Its a shame that Honda doesn't make a "standard" 125cc and 250cc motorcycle. On a sport bike you're leaning forward with feet behind. On a cruiser you're leaning back with feet in front. I've had a lot of bikes over the years and a large frame standard bike is the only type I find comfortable.

Q (Honda CX500 "standard")
