No doubt clever marketing with the 338 instead of 883. It this is spec'd well I bet it could be a competitor in the small displacement bike class here in the states. I love my 390 Duke and my wife has had a 250 and 400 Ninja. We love railing around on lightweight machines.

Has anyone on here honestly ever got off of ANY motorcycle and said "that sucked!"??? Even the crappiest Briggs and Stratton minibikes deserve some credit. Probably more so than some of those silly ass circus ride choppers that showed up in the late 90"s and 2000's.
This is a new bike for a particuar market, might not be a first choice for most of us, but it surely isnt a Prius.
Put it on a sprint road course with some slick tires and half of you would get smoked by some 12 year old dirtbike kids.
Try riding something else for a moment.

I might consider a ‘67 427, but I’d have to think about it. They handle like shopping carts, but being able to sit in the carb throat, might sway me.

427 will be too big in Asia, they have a surcharge, hefty one for bike with an engine over 350cc, even Augusta is targeting this market with a 300 cc bike.

My choice too. I remember when they were cheaper and turning my nose up at them for $6K and you could get a 76 trans am for the same amount. Most beautiful of them all was in that era.
