Nice. when you copy existing designs that took a lot of money to develop, and you alter just enough to escape the copyright lawyers, you can get into a market by undercutting opponents' cost.

Fuck the Chinese. Even with a KTM engine.

Sounds good.
I'm probably a fool for hoping that it will have half decent suspension

This is only one of 3 possible "looks" for the bike,

I think one is Triumph Tiger look alike and the other a V-Strom look alike???

Just saw it briefly on other riders cell phone about a week ago.

Just looking at the picture I can already see that this bike will be way better and more capable than the Yamaha T7. I will definitely buy one  :thumleft:
