I had heard from a reliable source that something like this was coming. Nice to see it starting to come together. NIce loking bike; definitely styled and designed for its stated purpose.

I remember when they (pre)launched the HP2 that they said they were going expand the "HP" series to a pure sports street bike. Looks like this is the result of that development.
