Independent survey my a##

3 posts in this topic

I got an independent dirtbike survey in the mail yesterday. Very interesting.

A lot of questions on reasons for the purchase of my bike and a lot of questions on what I would look for on the purchase of a new bike. Many questions on what I like and what I would change.

But the question I found most interesting was "which of the following bikes would I consider buying next". I was offered three choices:

1) Susuki DRZ400

2) Yamaha WR426

and get this...

3) Honda XR440

The XR440 had the following disclaimer under it..."if it was to be produced".

It listed the following description...

- 46 horsepower (WR426 only 43)

- CR style aluminum frame

- liquid cooled

- Conventional 47mm forks

- 255 lbs (WR426 268 lbs)

Independent survey my butt. I got a feeling Honda is testing the waters. Well, I'm no dummy, I checked the box indicating I would purchase the Honda XR440. And I would too. I'd be all over that thing like piss on a bum's shoe.

Man would that be a sweet bike. Oh, and the survey came with a crisp new one dollar bill inside thanking me for my time. Come on Honda!
