as it hasn't been released yet and this is a photo of a bike taken outside a shop/cafe etc. i think there is more chance this is a custom built bike rather than a new bike.

Handsome machine, but too puny for it to be very entertaining with my big ass on it.

The SM however - one doesn't have to roll fast to impress the local constabulary with one's stupidity. :oops:

More enabling than an SD in terms of hooliganism. Lightweight, so easy to throw around ... Long-travel suspension changes the urban landscape into open space (putting one's license in jeopardy). As for racing them - not that exciting - agreed.

Started riding in 1966 so I believe you are the virgin, I've ridin dirt bikes with street tyres way back my friend when it wasn't "fasionable" and or. available at all,,,dirt bike, kids stuff IMO, if I want to slide around. a dirt bike is what I would get,,,,then get real, sales of these things in the US market, never got going at all and any dealer around will tell you that, none want them languishing on the sales floor collecting dust, a few dealers around here put them all out to demo, and demo is where they stayed , they may interst a very few who want to orgasm but cheap thrills at an expensive price dosn't sell well at all ,,,

While I like the spirit of 390, I would still buy a dirt bike and just throw on a supermoto kit. I too started motorcycling in the dirt. I'm T-shirt and jeans kinda guy, I don't care much for whats fashionable, the Superduke is not fashionable, KTM is not fashionable and supermoto is defineatly not fashionable, but it's fun as hell!
