I kind of like the business plan and design of this new bike...http://47moto.com/
The COO was apparently the head of R&D at Buell and did some special design projects with H-D.
I like the adjustability and fun factor built into the first model. Now if they're able to get some public visibility, distributership deals and if they price these thing properly, I think they stand a chance.

So roughly about $5k as a price point then.  CBR300R, CB300F, CRF250L, Rebel 300, YZF R3, Vstar 250, GSX250R, GW250, GW250F, TU250X, DR200S, Vanvan 200, Ninja 300, Royal Enfield Bullet 500 EFI and KTM 390 Duke are all in that range too.

That's quite a bit of competition that don't have the features or MPG numbers 47Moto are talking.

Very exciting. I am waiting to see what the Firefly is like - a city adventure bike. I hope this company does well. Small bikes are a lot of fun!
