presently enjoy riding a Ruckus and a Super 9. Tinkering with a Riva 180 and a couple of old Puch SV's. In the off season I enjoy a 1999 Polaris Indy 600 XLT Touring and a 2014 Artic Cat Prowler side by side

Here's my problem with bikes like this. What will it cost? If it's more than $4000-pass. The SYM RV 200 is comparable and cheaper. Plus Suzuki just announced the price of the two cylinder GW-250cc bike at $3999 at AIMExpo. I know it's apples and oranges but I'll reserve judgement until MSRP is forthcoming. Kymco Like 200i anyone?

I don't see it costing less than $5g. My best guess is $5399 - $200 less than Honda's Forza but the Forza is a 278cc machine. Suzuki's scooters in general seem a tad expensive, seemingly because they feel the Burgman is a winning formula they can charge more for.

The Like 200 at $2699 is quite the bargain - although to be fair it's only about 180cc and there's far less maxi-scooter type features. Kymco's Downtown 200i was a closer competitor, and that machine was $5199.

I'd be more excited about the little Burgie if it was a 250-300cc machine. At 200cc, it's still going to struggle on the highway whereas a Honda Forza or Kymco Downtown 300 would provide a lot more capability for probably a similar price.
