What do ya'll think about the new blend of "bikes" coming out... so called motorcycles with automatic transmissions/clutches and such? I've never been a fan of these since i heard about 'em a few years ago, but i saw a couple of pics of this Honda DN - 01, which will be out in a couple of weeks....i may have to rethink my theory

The Honda DN - 01 looks gawd awful but the FJR1300AE - "just a big cc scooter"? I never thought I would have to admit I want a scooter
I really like the DN01. But, 14K for a swing your leg over scooter? The FJR is a much better choice

According to one review I read, it isn't very fast at all. It also has NO storage space. As in none; not even enough for a "brown bag" lunch. Don't quote me on this, but I also think it's not coming to the States; at least not yet.

The weirdest thing has got ot be the infinitly variable automatic transmission. They have used this type of transmission in cars before, it hasnt really caught on. I just cant imagine what it would feel like to never feel a shift from one gear to the next. What if you have to downshift hard?
