I just saw one for the first time. Ok maybe I live under a rock. Not very easy to find on the web based on a glance as it flew by. So motorcycle mavens what have you to say of this bike, inexeplicably I find it intriguing....

It's a Brit and Euro spec bike We don't get them in the US. They call it a "Diversion" and it appears to sell pretty well as an all-rounder.

In the early 80's Yamaha came out with a sport touring version of their Virago called an XV920 which in my opinion at the time was the cats pajamas. After a year or two it morphed into the chopperesque Virago that we're more familier with and lost any appeal it had with me but the '81 and '82 versions were pretty cool

In 83 (maybe) Yamaha made a xj900 seca. Very cool. Can find them for around $2000 or so.
