Looks like Quasimodo from the side. Betcha it runs like a demon.

Wonder how much it weighs.

You probably need legs that go up to your armpits to be able to touch the ground, looks far too high for normal sized people (or short ar**s!!)

Looks more supermoto than adventure or scrambler to me - new Ducati supermotard has an 890mm high seat, KTM 640 is 910mm.  I guess you have to be tall for these things!!  :008:

But then, what height is a BMW 1200GS?  I think it's up around 870-890mm.  I rode one with a lower seat option (870mm?) and it was a big lump to paddle around!! Nice bike though.  :034:

if so, must have been a GS Adventure
a normal GS isn't that tall and the seat height can be set in 2 positions

The footpegs are way back and up. I think it would be hard to ride standing. Maybe I am wrong but I am sure it would be fun.
