Very tragic crash in Russia.
Tags: bike, crossover
I have to admit that I’m sold on the DN-01′s swoopy styling; it reminds me a bit of the “vibe” of one my favorite sport cruisers of all time–namely, the late, lamented Moto-Guzzi Centauro (man, what a cool, under-appreciated bike that was!). I can’t wait to see one of these things in the flesh.
Now about the drive-train: purists will probably freak out over the CVT-for-cycles layout, and on one level I can understand why. I never thought the manual transmissions in motorcycles were all that tricky to master in the first place. But, in a world filled with cell phone-addled SUV jockeys, etc., I suppose there’s much to be said for reducing the motorcycle pilot’s “workload”–if only to allow more mindshare for dodging kamikaze pickup trucks and the like. Besides, the “twist’n'go” approach does have a certain appeal all its own.
