Motorcycle/Scooter Hybrid... 600lbs... 700cc... and in the fastest color.
I think the future will hold more hybrids/variants of the motorcycle/scooter - scooter/motorcycle theme. The cycle industry will follow suit with the auto industries efforts for more PC/Eco/Affordable rides. The mainstay models will remain. I see factory-backed (Hon, Yam, Suz, Kaw,Can-Am, etc. -HD)mainstreamparallel hybridscooters pushed onto us... right around the corner. Once the economy springs back, a surge in M/C sales will fund production for their tabled designs.
Many, many scooters on the road here where I'm at with a HIGH percentage of female riders on them. More scooter shops than bike shops.
More bikes on the road though, but sometimes you wouldn't know it.
Not really sure why it interests me... but I see it.
